Today, is my birthday! Growing up, my mother would always make me one of my favorite two cakes for my birthday a Burnt Sugar Cake or a Confetti Cake. Now that I get my own cake, I wanted to do something different…I wanted to have a cake look healthy even though it wasn’t.
So, last year I decided to get a cake that looked like a red apple. It was a chocolate cake with butter cream icing…no fondant for me. I got the cake from Luscious Layers Bakery and it was amazing! This year going with the theme of my blog/website I decided to get cupcakes with half of them having green apples on the top and half of them with black high heel shoes.
I love cake and icing. I am not one of those people that wipes of the icing, because there is to much on one piece of cake. I don’t like a little icing with my cake…I like a little cake with my icing. There is just no substitute I could have on my birthday that would come close to the texture, flavor, and mouthfeel of cake, so I just watch my portion size. Everything in moderation! If you don’t allow yourself to enjoy the things you love to eat then what is the point of eating. Plan ahead, get a workout in, and savor every delectable bite of that apple!
What is your favorite birthday treat?
