As with most buffets, the scene changed into split up into sections.

However, we didn’t go to Golden Corral for salads or cakes. Or soups—they also had 3 extraordinary soups, but we didn’t get any of that.

After we had been moderately full, we took a quick examine the cakes for educational purposes. The chocolate fountain turned into too much for us to skip up. There were symptoms everywhere declaring that no one beneath the age of 10 was allowed to apply the chocolate fountain by myself. As we are now of age, we expectantly grabbed a skewered chew of pineapple and slowly dipped it into the cascading ribbons of velvety chocolate.

As we pulled the masterpiece out of the fountain, our lives flashed earlier than our eyes as the pineapple began to slip off of the skewer. Some fancy maneuvering stored our scrumptious treat out of the bottom of the fountain and kept us out of Golden Corral jail. Now we recognize why “cakes” is “confused” spelled backward. Next time, we’ll stick with the meat and potatoes.
