A Vote for Romney is a Vote for Welsh Cakes!
For those living in Wales, and with access to the rather random frequency which BBC Wales is broadcast on (so for those in the South West of England there is a good chance you do receive it, while for those living in South East Wales there is a good chance you don’t), you’ll be familiar with the rather desperate attempts made by the Welsh news coverage to find any and all Welsh connections to any and all world events, however ephemeral they might be. Well, we now have a direct reason to be involved in the Republican nomination campaign in the United States. BBC Wales revealed today that Mitt Romney is married to a proper Welsh woman! Well, Welsh by descent she may be, but Ann Romney would appear to be doing sterling work in the states, promoting the humble Welsh cake.
Now debates may rage about which is the best kind of cake out there, but in Wales the argument is usually ended with the presentation and subsequent consumption of a plate of Welsh cakes. A wonderful treat, perfect in size and form, the Welsh cake is a masterful offering as either a dessert or a light snack during the day, anytime of day, anytime of year, the little Welsh cake is a versatile champion of the cake world. Frankly EyeOnWales has little interest in the Republican nomination campaign, or who ends up in the White house, yet the prospect of Welsh cakes being served in said building has suddenly made the issues real, and we now have an opportunity to put Welsh cakes in the White house, and on to a global scale. The kitchen of Ann Romney could well become the most powerful marketing tool for the Welsh gastronomic economy (if such a thing exists).
So, having given this no further thought than the fact that Welsh cakes are in some way involved, EyeOnWales is proud to give its full endorsement to Mitt Romney, his wife and her Welsh cakes, to take the Republican nomination, and carry our national cakes all the way to the White house. If we could, we would be voting Romney/Cakes!
