I am a cake junkie that's what I am! And something has to be done about it and has to be done fast!
Now, I can live without chips and pop-corn they never tempt me. I can skip chocolate and say no to ice cream most times. But skipping cake??? No way! !! Cake is the ideal dessert (hope that's spelled right, didn't mean the dry waste land in case you'r wondering). And I'll take any except may be cream cakes with tons of fake whipping cream. Give me doughnuts, chocolate cake or muffins, Danish puff pastry or plain sweet sourdough with raisins I'll take them all along with cherry pie and apple pie, Schwarzwalder Kirsch and Sachertorte und Topfenstrudel. I'll even exchange them for a real dinner anytime you asked. And the best ever dessert buffet I had was the cake buffet at my brothers wedding. In the best of German Kuchen fashion the picture has stuck deep in my memory and only the strict food regulations at the restaurant where we had our daughter's wedding prevented me to reenact this beautiful memory...
Now, I always knew I liked cake. But I never yet admitted that the love is such a huge one. OK. you can look at my trackers and see I have not abused cake in a long time. But the idea of cake is there all the time. I wake up with it: "So what am I going to have for breakfast?" The first though to be tackled: "Danish puff with cheese and a cup of coffee" (650 calories at least!); "Lunch has been good but I need something sweet to finish it off. I need some cake"; and afternoon: "A doughnut would go so well with this cupa" and even evening: "Now I've worked so hard I must have this muffin/wafer/pancakes". Well then there are the extreme days when the thought of a double chocolate cake with chocolate icing never even for a minute leaves my mind!
So there you see the war is on. It's consuming too much of my energy. Anyone broken such a spell already? I could use some advice.
