Minecraft Mania

One of my favorite things about cake decorating is that each and every cake means a new challenge of some sort.

And I like challenges.  Well, sort of. This week I’ve also challenged myself to something new:  no desserts.

Funny thing is that when I told my coworkers (fellow dietitians), the result was confused looks and questions of “why??”  Most of us LOVE dessert, though partake responsibly. As a matter of fact, I tend to keep chocolate at my desk in case of bad days.  Consider it more of a medicine.  I figure it’s better than insanity.

But after all of these cake orders, I’d OD’ed on cake and frosting.  My body wanted to work out and eat fewer sweets. Note:  my mind did NOT love this idea. But I figured I would challenge myself. Just a few days of dessert-free living. Can’t be that hard, right? W-R-O-N-G!

Three days later (and one bad day yesterday), and I’m proud to have proved to myself that I can do it!! And now that I’ve proved it to myself, I have 2 more days and I’ll be having chocolate something-or-other. You know, to celebrate my not eating chocolate. Makes total sense…promise.

 

Another challenge I conquered not too long ago:  a Minecraft cake.

Apparently Minecraft is kind of a big deal.  Childless like me and have no idea what it is? Fear not. According to the super simplified description on their website, it’s a pixelated world in which players break and place blocks. Obviously there is more to it than that. But it’s pretty cute! And what a great challenge to make this cake. Not your typical birthday cake, which I love, and it brought a huge smile to the birthday boy’s face, which I also love. Here is the final product. Ignore the bad lighting. These were taken very late at night, so the “natural light” was not so good.
