I bought this huge, absolutely delicious cake for my husbands' birthday party last week. So much of it is left over and it's driving me crazy. He's eating it way too slowly and in the meantime, I want to eat a slice every night. I want a slice right now.
Should I eat it and suffer the consequences or just throw it away?

Eat it until it's all gone, then it will no longer haunt you Smile

Seriously, if you're dieting, allow yourself a small pieceĀ…and if you still can't resist having another small slice, then throw the rest away.

That's how I used to operate. Buy a box of cookies, eat them until they're gone. Cake? Eat it up and get it out of the house. These days tho, I'm gonna feel that cake around my middle just in time for Thanksgiving. And carry it on into Christmas. It could be the start of an fat holiday season.
But it's so yummy...

Eoe, eat it all in one sitting. One day of "fatness" might be bad but what the hell...we might not be here to enjoy the cake tomorrow. Just watch what you eat in everything else. Cut out something else for the next few days. You can balance that evil/glorious cake out.

Soz, I got it from Metrotainment in Atlanta. They supply cakes for various restaurants in and around the city. This thing has got to be about five layers. It's a monster. Much bigger than I anticipated and good through and through.

You all will be proud of me. I did not have a slice last night after all. But look out tonight!

You all know of course that it's actually not a German (= from Germany, German immigrants etc) chocolate cake but German's chocolate cake (= invented by an American guy named German in 19th century somewhere in the Midwest :wink:

Interesting Walter...but no matter I like it without care to where it originated, after all it is chocolate.


As for the best, that would be the first I ever had when I was about 14. No other has quite compared to that first moment of sheer ecstasy I experienced as the moist cake entered my mouth.

eoe, sit your husband down and force him to eat it at a gunpoint. or, if you have no gun, hold a roller over his head... all but one more little slice for you maybe...

He had a piece tonight. But there's still loads to go. And I'm thinking about another slice tonight myself. It's calling to me. Confused Razz
