Vegan Mofo VI- Day 7: Cake...It's What's For Dinner

Last night we celebrated my friend E's 4th birthday. It was right after work so I did not have time to eat dinner before I got there. I was super hungry so it wasn't really a good idea for me to be surrounded by cupcakes my sister made. There was also a cake in the fridge that her boyfriend made. It came out fine but he wasn't satisfied with the decorating job so it was hiding in the fridge. I said I would try it since looks are not a factor for me when it comes to food. So many things taste much better than they look, right?

To start, I had my first cupcake and a scoop of So Delicious Neopolitan ice cream. They were both so scumptious, I had to have more. I was going to get a second cupcake but then I remembered, fridge cake! I took it out and cut into it. It was denser and firmer than the cupcakes because it had been in the fridge, I knew I was in trouble! It also had more frosting than the cupcakes, uh-oh. I quickly announced to everyone how bomb fridge cake was, so then they wanted to try it too. I knew I couldn't get away with hogging fridge cake after they knew it was so good. So, I helped myself to another cupcake and the rest of my mom's ice cream she didn't finish.

I jokingly told my sister I would take home any extras. I didn't really need to since I had thirds, but she did send me home with a cupcake and a 4" x 4" slab of fridge cake. I couldn't believe she gave me so much after I already ate so much, but 2 of the 3 kids would be gone the rest of the week and she probably didn't want all that cake at her place. See what I good sister I am to have around sometimes!

If it's possible to overdose on cake, that is exactly what I did last night. I had a terrible tummy ache, but I still stand by my story that it can be blamed on lady time more than the cake. Anyway, I had to get a picture of my leftovers today so I trimmed down my fridge cake into a nice slice, eating the not as neat parts as I went along of course. I tried to unsmoosh the cupcake while leaving it in the wrapper but that didn't work out so well. So it's a little crumby, but it's also very sweet.

Dessert for dinner makes perfect sense to me! Chocolate cake is the best!
