For when you just want some cake…

1 Jan

Hello lovelies!

So this shall probably be my last post for awhile. I’m trying to stay out of the kitchen because I’ve been over eating again. No baking = no blog posts. Oh wells, it’s not like I blog much anyway. I really should write more posts!

Anyways, so today’s post isn’t even about a recipe.

You know how sometimes you’re just craving cake? Craving it so bad that you need it right then? That was me last week. And I wanted cake so bad that it didn’t matter where it came from, or what kind it was. Well it had better have a lot of icing on it, that’s all, I thought to myself. And so, I took out the yellow cake mix and chocolate icing that I had been saving for an emergency like this. I was going to have cake, come hell or hyenas.

And so I baked that cake. I baked it good.

It came out of the oven with a light brown crisp top layer, and a soft, golden, fluffy interior. After the cake cooled I levelled it with a knife, and then spread a thick as hell layer of icing on top. The icing was being kind of annoying because it kept picking up crumbs and ruining the cake, but I finally spread the damn thing on top. Now I usually don’t use the whole package of icing on a cake, but this time I did. In fact, I was aiming for a 50/50 ratio of icing to cake, and I think I got pretty close.

I didn’t garnish the cake with anything. I was out of sprinkles. And coloured sugar. And any sort of chocolate. In fact my baking cupboard was pretty much empty. Thank goodness for the emergency cake mix and icing I was saving. I knew this day would come. Planning for the future, that’s what I do.

Mmmmm that cake was divine. It really hit the spot. That means my hips looked a little wider the next morning.

Whatever, it was damn worth it.

Anyways, I’m really starting to worry about what I’m going to do about this blog, because it really doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. After all, I’m not a baker, I’m just a follower-of-recipes. I don’t make up my own desserts. I just follow recipes I find on other blogs and websites. Also, I never really get time to bake. Not to mention I’m trying to lose weight so I shouldn’t even be having any desserts in the first place.

I think I should take some time and decide whether I want to keep this blog or not. Maybe I could try finding healthier recipes to make? I doubt it I’ll find many. But I’ll definetely try!

Anyways, I’ll see you in a bit my lovelies!

I hope you guys are enjoying your holidays, and Happy New Year! Let’s make 2012 good. :)

Take care and I’ll see you soon!
