Sean and I are addicted to sweets. It gets bad enough that sometimes we have to make a gas station run to pick up some candy or ice cream. Sometimes we can hold out…but when the going gets hard and a nasty cold descends, you bet your ass we’ll be chowing down on sweets with zero thought.
Every once in awhile, we’ll make the decision that something must be done about our problem. This cake was the straw that broke the camel’s back this time. Decadent (store-bought, ew, definitely not zero waste) white cake (with all sorts of chemicals to make it sugar-free) infused with pumpkin and dotted with my secret favorite candy: mello-cremes.
I whipped this bad boy up, plopped some mello-cremes in it, and made an applesauce glaze for it (recipe below, for better or for worse). Then I brought it over to my sick boyfriend and he ate it all up.
Okay, I helped.
So then we decided we really needed to start watching our food intake more. I mean, it’s not like we’re eating a cake a day, but Tuesday isn’t really a cause for cake celebration. You know, unless your man is ill.
Applesauce Cake Topping
1 cup unsweetened natural applesauce
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
I heated up the applesauce and mixed it all together and then slopped it on the cake. The pictures were not appetizing, but the food was!
