44/52 for the group 52 in Twenty Eleven

This week's theme was: Food

Although I'm trying to lose weight, I do still eat some cake. However, I instigated a new rule -- I am only allowed to eat cake that I have made myself.

There are two reasons for this: it stops me impulse buying cake in the supermarket and thus reduces temptation! It also means that I can reduce the amount of sugar in the cakes.

Though they look tempting in the shop, I do find many shop-bought cakes too sickly sweet for my taste.

As you can see, the one on the right is a bit blobby, but they taste good. :)

t I can reduce the amount of sugar in the cakes.

I do that too, as I'm diabetic, but feel I ought be able to have some cake occasionally. And in any case, home-made cake is much more delicious than shop bought, unless it's truly expensive top of the range which I wouldn't normally buy anyway.

Indeed. I often find shop bought to be disappointing. They look so appealing, but don't taste as good as they look -- unless, as you say, you go for the very expensive kind.

I can see a problem there - last weekend we received one cake each from two different neighbours (and sent out one patch of chocolate black bean brownies)

Well, of course my husband isn't on a diet. :) But thankfully there isn't a tradition here of giving cakes to one another, so that temptation is removed. If necessary, I freeze cakes in chunks so that I don't feel that I have to eat it up quickly before it goes stale. That's another diet wrecker!
