There are several presupposed and pre-ordained principles necessary for a quality dessert. And, of course, they follow the expected TULIP scenario. These are:

T - Totally awsome
U - Unconditionally served
L - Limitless in supply
I - Irresistible icing
P - Preserves our current weight

Note that these points deal both with the imminent and with the eternal. Cake must always be good tasting. But that is assumed. If it is not good tasting then it was affected by the fall and can be rejected on account of depravity. A good-tasting cake reflects imago libum, a reflection of the ultimate created cake.

(Ok, to date I’ve posted on ribs and on cakes.  Shall I create a Calvinist Cookbook?)
