Q. Describe a person in terms of food and also include an appropriate simile.

Honey loves to cook. It is not so much the pleasure of eating as it is whipping up a new concoction from the most surprising ingredients. How do you do it? her friends ask, as she serves them slices of her famous sponge cake in which are embedded cumin-sized pieces of orange rind which leave a bittersweet taste in the mouth that lingers for hours. Honey's candy floss hair rests on her shoulders and her sausage-like fingers are curled around the handle of her rolling pin. At the praise, her heart swells, like the bread in the oven, and her caramel eyes sparkle. Her apron spell out 'kiss the cook' and is tied around her dumpling-like body: soft and round. Her complexion is creamy and her cheeks look as if they have been dabbed with cherry sauce. The kitchen smells like vanilla and sugar and so does she. And her friends know that when they leave, they will feel like turkeys on Thanksgiving - stuffed.
