Depends on whether marj has effective deterrent sanctions for cake consumption. You question has omitted this vital fact.

It seems that Marj & I have differing views on an acceptable rate of culinary attrition.

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the cake tin, let the mourners come.

Let black clouds form where the sun once shone
Scribbling on the sky the message Cake is Gone.
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.
It was my Breakfast, Dinner, Tea and Lunch,
My midnight snack and morning brunch.
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
Marj thought that cake would last 'til Friday: she was wrong.

Its plates are not wanted now; wash them all up,
Rinse out the teapot and stack up the cups,
Pour away the tealeaves and sweep up the crumb;
For Cake has no future except in Al's tum.
Never tell me the odds.

Looks like it needs butter spreading on it (only the best butter, mind).
There's no vibrations, but wait.
