sweet tooth

Today is day 20 of the whole30 and I won’t lie, this hasn’t been easy for me. Guys, all I want is a mothereffing cupcake, or a piece of cake, or a cookie, or a donut. I won’t even be picky.

I’ve spent the past 20 days thinking of all the treats I’ll make once it’s done. It isn’t even that I want to eat them, but I desperately want to make something pretty. And like meat, that isn’t pretty.

s’mores cake, 14 layer cake, funfetti cupcakes

Admittadely, I am freaking obsessed with s’mores. I ate one ever single day last summer. Obviously this didn’t happen this summer. That 14 layer cake has been in my dreams for months.┬áLegitimately. I have never seen anything so spectacular. And who doesn’t love funfetti cupcakes? I’ve been dying to try this recipe.

I think I need to be checked into baking/sugar rehab. My boyfriend just told me to stop looking at pictures of cake. I will do NO such thing.

T minus 10 days until my apartment turns into a bakery. Get prepared.

    You can do it! You can do it! And then we will talk only about sweets together. It makes me so happy that someone else feels the EXACT same way as me!

    Ugh. I made a list while I was doing it too. Luckily most of the treats I listed were still no grains (but definitely had sugar in them)…….. like THESE: http://urbanposer.blogspot.com/2012/04/best-almond-flour-cinnamon-rolls-paleo.html ……. don’t look unless you want to cry

    I can’t believe you’ve made it this long! I’m proud of you – mainly because I totally understand how much will power that takes and I know I could never do it myself.
