This week will be interesting, trying to keep my eating on track. I’m working on a wedding cake, which means the fridge has been emptied in preparation for the tiers that will soon fill it. Which means there’s not much to eat around here. Which means we’ll be eating out every night! And. We’ve gotta do it on a $10-$15 budget a day (total, not per person). That means fast food. I’ve already eaten two McDonald’s salads and am wondering how many more I can eat before I get sick of them. Taco Bell has some healthy “fresco” menu items now and of course there’s Subway. I think I’ll be OK.
I most likely will not be working out because I won’t have the time. This is the biggest order I’ve ever had b/c it’s not only for the three-tier cake but for 80 cake balls & 2 dozen cupcakes. And I have a day job. EEEEEEK! It will be OK, but I will be relieved once the cake is delivered.
This is my fourth wedding cake & sixth tiered cake so I’m not nervous about stacking the tiers since I’m comfortable with doing the whole dowel rod support system thing, but I always get nervous about creating something that so much importance is placed on it. The wedding cake is BIG DEAL. And I not only have to live up to those expectations, but keep the cake from being destroyed before I even get it there. *eep!*
Wish me luck, not only with keeping on track health-wise but with the cake as well. Right now it’s pretty much the center of my universe.
I’ll leave you with pics of the tiered cakes I mentioned. I’ll talk to you Thursday…unless I forget the date, forget to weigh-in, forget my name….
