I love baking cake. I like eating cake. But my problem is that I like baking cake so much that I would like to try a new cake every second day.

I take it out of the oven, smell it, smile at how it worked out [if I didn’t screw it up], taste a piece or two, and now… now I’m stuck with a giant cake. Usually I make my boyfriend take it to work the next day to feed it to his coworkers – but they are starting to get suspicious!

So, new rule – no baking unless there is a big enough crowd to eat it all! Luckily today I found plenty of volunteers :)
