The Hazards of Cake Decorating

So, cake decorating sounds like a pretty harmless hobby/business, right?  Well, not if you're concerned with your waist line, it's not!  :)  I am never actually tempted to snack on cake anymore.  I've been doing this for 15 years now, so the craving for cake has definitely wore off.  But....

I had an order for this adorable little truck cake this week.  And guess what I had left over?

 M&M's!  Who can resist M&M's???

And then, I had an order for this baby shower.   It had THE cutest theme...milk and cookies!  So the main cake is our white almond sour cream with cookies n' cream filling.  And the cupcakes are chocolate with cookie dough icing.  The cake as pictured isn't complete...the party planner was going to add some cookies around the base to finish it off.  She is being so kind as to share photos with me, so hopefully I'll have a couple to post.  And of course, anytime I make cookies n' cream filling, what am I left with?

Oreos!  I don't even like Oreos that much anymore, but when they're sitting on my counter, they just call to me. 

And finally, I made this platter for a donation to be auctioned off at a benefit.  I really hope it went well and helped the family in need.

And...yup, you guessed it.  With this, I was left with extra buckeyes.  Chocolate and peanut butter...who could possibly have the will power to NOT eat one of these?!

So, it's been a rough week.  I'm envisioning an extra run (or two) this week, to attempt to make up for all of my indiscretions.  :)  But hey, everyone should be allowed to splurge occasionally, right?!
