She Didn’t Say Anything About Cake

Women in Politics

You may or may not have noticed the cute little button I recently got from Kim over at Petroville. Even with the bowls full of Halloween goodies already in the holiday staging area (aka the dining room), I’ve agreed to take her Halloween challenge:

The No Candy Promise 2007

Given that the peri-menopausal weight creep is taking its toll on me, I figured this one would be a good one — no need for those little tasty treats to take their toll on my already expanding tummy and thighs.

But she didn’t say anything about cake.

Especially birthday cake.

On our recent PunditMom birthday celebration weekend, we dined at a place known for a little something called “Death By Chocolate.”

We only got one. To Share. Really.

But I am thinking of contacting the restaurant to see if they will rename the dessert. Because I think PunditGirl came up with a moniker that is far more appropriate for this goodie –

PunditMom and The Cake of Death!

MMMMmmmmmmm. Cake of Death.

Be Sociable, Share!

    Well, I TRY and be good but I can’t resist just one Milky Way at least…

    ‘Sides, my dd is 11 and won’t be ToTing much longer so I need to take advantage while I can (I know, I know I’m justifying it….)

    “MMMMmmmmmmm. Cake of Death.”

    Homer Simpson said that in my head when I read it.

    And really, it depends on what her definition of “eat” is. How about ‘Attack’, for instance? Demolish?

    I love candy corn, so I won’t be joining you.

    That cake looks amazing!

    To continue on my random comment, I think that the picture of you with the cake should be your new profile picture. :)

    That does look heavenly, and I am not a big chocolate fan. Cake? YES!

    I give you credit about the candy, I just can’t. Weak, I know.

    Oh that cake! YUM!

    And happy belated birthday. :)

    Looks like a delicious way to die.

    I have been eating cake, fast food, cookies …anything and everything BUT candy. Not sure that’s working out for me but I’m holding true to my promise ;-)

    Happy belated birthday!!!
    Hugs :)

    Belated happy birthday.

    My God that cake looks fabulous. Not as fabulous as you, of course, but fabulous all the same.

    Hey, we all have to go somehow. Might as well be chocolate cake consumption. :)

    No candy here. I’m giving T-o-Ters mini cans of PlayDoh, pretzels, tattoos, super-balls, gummy bracelets, and 24 packs of crayons bought when Target had them on sale for 20 cents each.

    Last year I did both small toys and candy as an experiment, and the toys were a huge hit.

    Happy Belated Birthday. That cakes looks like it is almost worth dying for!

    And the candy promise…I saw that challenge as well. But my son’s allergic to nuts, and it’s my job to eat all of the candy that he gets that have nuts in it on Halloween. You know…to save him. I just can’t disappoint him now can I?

    Now THAT’S a piece of cake. Belated birthday wishes!

    Wow, the cake sounds wonderful!!! And no worries, if it’s not candy, it doesn’t count. That what I tell myself anyways ;)
