Carlo's Bake Shop...

... is a TERRIBLE place for a dieter to go.

We went to NYC this weekend to visit my mom's best friend. My sister is a BIG fan of TLC, and especially Cake Boss. Her birthday was a little under a month ago, and she's been bugging my parents for quite some time now to take her to Hoboken and buy her a cake with fondant on it.

So, my family did it. It was SUCH a long lineup to get in (2 hours!) and it took an hour to actually choose our food and pay; it was like a zoo in there! Carlo himself wasn't there, of course (he's a very busy guy these days) but we did see Cousin Anthony, who I happen to have a bit of a soft spot for :s Of course Mom spotted him too and decided to get his attention for a picture.. so as soon as he was standing in front of us, she screamed, "COUSIN ANTHONY!!!!!" and waved. She enjoys embarrassing me!

We made it out of there with $140 worth of cupcakes, lobster tails, cookies, biscotti, and a fondant cake. I cheated on my diet that weekend... and I cheated a lot. After my first bite of the best cupcake I had ever had in my life, there was no turning back.

But I'm home now, and ready to get back into this, 100%. No more cheating!
