I dreaded this recipe. So many calories and I’m feeling war weary from all the “discipline.” I’m down 11 pounds now, but stuff like this just takes me to my knees. For anyone who can appreciate this, 1/20th of a piece is 10 points. That’s right! I had my piece and thankfully, didn’t like it. It was just too rich for me. One shouldn’t have to break into a sweat after a piece of cake. I prefer my calories to be light and fluffy, like a Bavarian Cream or something (or a Gin Martini-dry and neat).
To boot, I fell sick mid-cake due to something I ate at lunch. There I was working on the buttercream, and the room suddenly got way too hot. I flushed with queasiness; then my head started spinning. That was pretty much the end of me for the rest of the day. Poor Rick had to nurse me AND pack up the Polish Princess for the night. All-in-all, this cake and I just weren’t a match.
