Safe to say my diet is officially on…ugh, hold.
Who decides to start eating better the week of Thanksgiving anyways? The chocolate cake was totally worth the cheat BTW. It was an unexpected non-traditional addition to the dessert table which I have to say, was most popular among the classic apple and pumpkin pie. I’ve never made a cake from scratch before so I followed Sarah Kieffer’s recipe to a T. Thank goodness B helped because the whole process was…a process. I didn’t realize how much work goes into making a cake! The measuring, the sifting, the whipping, beating, and stirring. So. Many. Steps. Then the frosting! Oh my goodness, the frosting. Chocolate everywhere. Legitimately, everywhere. It was borderline a disaster. And then transporting the cake to my parents…LOL. Send help. We somehow made it to dinner (somewhat) on time with minor trauma. Word to the wise: make cake the day before and frost at desired location.
