I have come to find that I have a slight talent in baking and decorating cakes. It is something that if it paid well, I would do as a career. Since it doesn't I do it as a side job for friends and family. However doing this and trying to watch my weight is a little bit of a struggle.
My friend/coworker's daughter's 1st Birthday is this weekend and she asked me to make her smash cake. So that is how I spent my day. Earlier I baked the 5 inch smash cake. Because it was only 5 inches that means there is extra to make 2 more small cakes! Then I proceed to level the cakes off, that means there are now scraps of cake laying in front of me! I just finished frosting the cake and of course there is extra frosting left! I repeat, it is hard to do what I love and watch my weight. Because we know every LICK, TASTE and BITE counts. Did I taste the scraps? - Yeap. Did I take a bite of the extra cake? - Yeap. Did I lick some frosting? - Yeap. Was it worth it? - I will let you know after I get on the scale Sunday.
