Corn Cob Pipes and "Cake"
As for cake, I kind of like seeing it there. It means that when I smoke my next bowl-full there's less chance of it burning through the wall of cob. Sure, it may mean that the flavor of the past tobaccos will linger on (ghosting), but then again, I enjoyed those tobaccos! If I smoked a blend or two that displeased me, I certainly didn't smoke enough of them to add their taste to the cake. The exception might be some of the nasty ropes or twists that I now avoid like the plague!
