Cake for one?Posted on May 16th, 2007 by Alison Read 1 Comment - Add Your Own »
Today is my birthday. My husband is out of town and I didn’t bother to throw any kind of celebration for myself. No, I’m not asking for pity – I’m just trying to figure out how I can have some birthday cake! Am I allowed to make a cake for myself and then eat it by myself?
Hmmm… checking the pantry for mixes… I could make Pamela’s Luscious Chocolate Cake – I love it as cupcakes with some chocolate chips thrown in. Or there is Namaste chocolate cake – so rich, so grown-up. If I want to share with my daughter I could make Cherrybrook Kitchen’s Gluten Free Dreams chocolate cake mix since it’s free of nuts, dairy and eggs too. For a yellow cake, I could go with Dowd & Rogers Dark Vanilla Cake Mix – the chestnut flour gives it a unique and yummy taste. I would love to make 1-2-3 Gluten Free’s Delightfully Gratifying Bundt Poundcake, but that makes a big delicious bundt cake and I won’t be able to resist eating the entire thing, which would be quite gluttonous (but not glutenous!)
Not really in the mood for baking though, so I might just bite into my Scharffenberger Semisweet chocolate bar and leave it at that. Maybe a cake next year…
