I was doing so good. I was keeping my food journal, watching my caloric intake & getting back in the habit of exercising every day. I had not seen a change in my body yet- I had only been going for about 10 days straight THEN my mom showed up with the birthday cake for the Munchkin. She has done cakes professionally- sort of on the side all my life & so I put in my special request for a pink Ombre cake. I had her watching my Pinterest board closely because I was gaining inspiration nightly. I was so excited for this cake. I think it may have been a little bit for me more than Munchkin because she had no part in deciding what we would do. My mom showed up with the tiers already baked, filled & crumb coated. We stayed up until about 1 AM working on it & it was so much fun. I don’t think I can do a regular one color cake ever again. I am so happy it’s finally out of the house though. Back to the diet & hoping to actually get somewhere this time.
Can you believe my mom made this out of gum paste??!!
I was so thrilled that we did Ombre on the inside too.
I whipped up some of my Strawberry Cheesecake frozen yogurt & some chocolate chip homemade ice cream to compliment it. I was also super thrilled that we made everything from scratch. No preservatives or additives. That has got to count for something good right??!!
