Part two sees us continue from the beginning of the great cake saga, from all the way back in June.
There are days when you do the right thing. Then there are days when you don't. On Facebook, there is a recipe that claims to be 'the most dangerous cake recipe in the world'.
Five minute chocolate cake. In the microwave. Oh yeah. And because of my breadmaker, I happen to have proper measuring spoons, which is a useful thing. What was also great was managing to work out more or less the correct carb value for it.
I thought about using Splenda instead of sugar, but past baking experience has taught me that Splenda is good for biscuits, but not good for cake. So sugar it was.
Now, sometimes I wonder what people think of me when I'm eating cake in public, and they know about my diabetes. I KNOW I can have it, and I know it's not like there's some sort of law that says I can't have cake. But I still wonder what people think. Whether they think I'm 'cheating', or handling my diabetes badly, or being irresponsible. Or whether they think that I've been telling them rubbish. Am I being a poor advocate for responsible behaviour? Do I have to be? Sometimes you just want cake. And even though I find carb counting difficult, I actually managed to work this one out.
Now I've made myself all confused. Where's the rest of that cake?
