I Want Cake

It's time to get serious about the diet.....

So I will just droll over pictures of cake instead...

Actually I can take or leave traditional cake, it's things like cheesecake and pie that are my weakness. And I am sorry but fat free yogurt with "sticky date pudding" flavoring do NOT taste like sticky date pudding, they taste like watering flavorless yogurt!

There is some serious talent in these cakes though. I tried to make a ghost cake for my daughter last year and it was dismal. It was a cake covered with blue icing, then I had to role out a thin lay of royal icing which i cut two little eyes out of so the blue icing would be seen. Twice I tried and failed. The royal icing just split and crumbled. Probably the fact that I was suffering from morning sickness didn't help (well that is my story and I am sticking to it). Thank goodness I have a wonderful generous daughter who praised all my attempts and was thrilled with the outcome.

I'm going to the cheesecake this weekend!

Coconut cream pie - yum

  1. Yummo. I too am a sucker for a cheesecake :) My family always make me feel better about failed baking adventures too. My dad once ate an entire slice of water logged chocolate mousse cake just because I'd made it :) Abbey x
