Quakers and cakes

Today yearly meeting decided on partnerships and I had the idea of trying to earn an extra crust by making "custom cakes" for couples especially but anyone in general under the franchise of tea and therapy, with food for your mood.  I have these great ideas *sigh* but I cannot decorate cakes for toffee so am I wasting my time?  In the context of the posting above this one I should involve this into a spiritual post on "Chuggie", which was the childhood name for flapjack I remember from my first boyhood best friend's family!

Another example of such an idea - you know the way drinking straws will always rise from a carbonated glass and invariably escape as you are nearing the destination?  Well it is not beyond the wit of man to devise a straw that will not do this and I reckon patenting that could make you a tidy sum.

Perfect Love

I was recently listening to "prayer for the day" on Radio Four and heard that Aung San Suu Kyi has been quoted as saying "perfect love casts out fear" and that there is a campaign to wear masks with her face on one side and these words on the other.

Then someone corrected me on the attribution and told me that in the words of Saint John

 James Bible
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

I've been pondering if this saying can be applied in all contexts, not only spiritual, and still reflect the truth I feel it represents...
