I can’t explain why, but there’s something especially satisfying about being served a little individual cake or pie, all your own. Sure, a piece of pie, cake, or fruitcake can be delicious (well, with fruitcake, sometimes). But when you have a perfect little neat-edged square of pecan pie or cheesecake, or a tiny croissant-shaped rogelach, the taste seems even better. And because you can easily convince yourself you’re not eating as much, you can go back for seconds. And thirds.
