“My cake is dough.”
– William Shakespeare.
It’s an English proverb meaning ‘My plans have failed.’
And it’s from Shakespeare’s play ‘The Taming of the Shrew’ in Act 5, Scene 1 it goes like this:
Gremio: ‘My cake is dough, but I’ll in among the rest. Out of hope of all but my share of the feast.
(Meaning: So much for my hopes! Well, I’ll go in and join the others. All I can hope for now is a share of the feast.)
Have you ever felt that way? I have!
Well, I’m making cake anyway! No matter what!
