It's not hard to avoid sugar at a big birthday party surrounded by cake. Mostly because I am also surrounded by people who know my goal of avoiding sugar until Thanksgiving. (No sugar on Halloween, crazy, right?!) It's when everyone leaves the birthday party at our house and I am left to face this:
I do have to say, I've been doing well having this decadent, rich and moist cake sharing my home. Walking past it everyday... I swear it screams my name when I don't notice it waving at me. And the truffles. The TRUFFLES. Birthday cake and chocolate mint. Drool...
But I am strong. And I can do hard things.
