A Slice of Heaven

I had the perfect birthday... cake! It was a strawberry layer cake from Puppy's (Only the best bakery in the country and Sivadump's only legit claim to fame) with oodles of cream and abslutely gorgeous strawberry icing (glaze actually). I spent a long time simply feasting my eyes on it and trying to capture the beauty of it for all eternity with my camera phone. My elder daughter who cares little for the aesthetic value of cakes insisted that I cut 'her' cake at once and proceeded to wave her plate at me for emphasis.

With great reluctance, I proceeded to slice it up. Not surprisingly it tasted even better than it looked. The sponge was so moist, it felt like velvet in my mouth! Had promised myself that I'll have only a tiny slice on account of my no - sugar diet but needless to stay my willpower put up a token resistance and then succumbed shamelessly to its delectable opponent. So I wound up having only cake for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. (Damn it all).

Guilt unfortunately tends to stimulate my appetite so I let my birthday celebrations continue over the weekend and committed one diet crime after the other. Had this concoction called 'Chocolate fantasy' which is chocolate cake with ice cream and followed it up with a sizzling brownie. Talk about chocolate overkill!

Anyways, birthday celebrations are finally over and I am going into chocolate rehab. God help meeee!!!! And Happy Birthday to me. Hopefully this year will be a leaner one.
