The culinary TV host made a cake exclusively with national products – an actual Portuguese cake, made with National Flour. And she wanted its form to be balanced and stable, just like the society she wants: a balanced and stable society. A society in which all people are governed by the same, common values, rooted in tradition and History. True values. She wants to take a photo next to it to celebrate an attack she prepared. A manifesto. A demand in the name of political change in the country. The exact number of victims will be inscribed on the top of the cake, in pastry cream – thus recorded with truth and rigor, without being subject to the usual manipulation by the media. The photo of this cake was never taken but, in prison, the woman is more optimistic than ever about change: there is a television commentator who is seeking to promote himself and is willing to follow her ideology.
