Here’s How To Make Bisexual Pride Cake

P1020165Pride season is just around the corner, and that means parties. 

Parties means cake. Here at Biscuit we are not cake bakers, but we are cake eaters, and that’s why we had our in-house culinary expert (she has a GCSE in Food Technology) develop this easy bisexual pride cake that even the most noviscular of novices – ie your Biscuit eds. – can manage.

You might notice that the bisexual element of the cake is hidden – some might say invisiblised – beneath a completely innocent looking facade. We couldn’t possibly comment.

10 bi-fabulous things to do instead of going to Pride

I don’t know about you, but every year during Pride month I struggle with the thought of participating in our local parade. I love the people, the dazzle of rainbow colors, the dykes on bikes, the in-your-face queerness, and the sense of feeling comfortable with people who share my struggles.

What I don’t like are the crowds, noise, and heat. It’s all a little too much for this socially anxious person.
