Samesies WIAW (Featuring a Giant Cake)

Helloskis.  I hope all you cheeky cats are doing well!

I took a petite break on the blogging front yesterday to buckle down and get some work done!  I do a 48-page magazine for my organization every three months (like the entire thing, design, layout, most of the photography, and most of the writing), and the entire project takes me weeks.  It has just been hanging over my head for the past little while and I am so glad it’s finally complete and sent to the printers.  A huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders 🙂  Hooray.

But I am back today for What I Ate Wednesday!

Other than work stuff, not too much has been crack-a-lackin’ with me the last few days, so you did not miss much.  And I honestly ate exactly the same foods for breakfast, lunch, and mid-morning snack both today and yesterday.

Same breakfast…

Cream Cheese + Jam = the JAM

Toasted whole wheat bagel topped with cream cheese and grape jelly.  Yeah, maybe a weird combo, but SO GOOD!  So good I ate it twice.

Same lunch…

Salad Beast

Beastly salad including lettuce, tomato, cucumber, shredded carrot, green onion, and my black beans and salsa mix leftover from my burritos the other night.  I dressed this puppy up with a bit of Italian dressing.  V filling and quite a groovy yumfest.

And, same mid-morning snack.

Yoggity Snack

PC Strawberry Green yogurt mixed with fresh sliced peach and raspberry.  This has actually been my go-to mid-morning snack for the past week or so.

I have snuck in a few treats as well though.  When Ando arrived home from work yesterday he was all “I have a present for youuuuuu” and held up a big plastic bag.

I love presents and surprises, but in this case I’m pretty sure I just said “Meh,” all disinterested.

Andy-pants works in communications for a company that manufactures cleaning supplies and products, so usually the “presents” that he brings home from work are things like heavy duty paper towels and disinfectant spray.  Please forgive me for not peeing my pantaloons in excitement.

But yesterday he had an event going on, and that is not what he brought home.  This is what he brought me:

Holy Cake, Batman

A GIANT piece of cake.  THAT piqued my interest immediately (because, as you know, I like to eat).  I was pumped as soon as I saw that thing.

That picture is not really doing the cake justice…


There ya go.  Now THAT is a piece of cake, my friends.

I wanted to eat the entire thing, but I managed to hold back and just cut myself a “sliver”.

Jusssst a Sliva

This cake was frickin’ delicious.  The cake itself was some kind of banana, but it was the icing that took the (literal) cake!  One of the best buttercream icings I have ever tasted.  I was dying.  And I loved that there was icing in the middle as well.  I much prefer icing in the middle to lemon filling or something.  I don’t want anything tangy messing up the taste of my sweet buttercream.

I kept going back to the cake throughout the evening and snacking on icing.  I couldn’t stay away!  I totally ruined my dinner appetite after that thing.

But here’s tonight’s delicious dinner:


Cheesy taco bake!  Topped with salsa and lettuce.  This is such a great alternative to tacos.  I loved it.

No workouts at all yet this week as I have been trying to catch up work-wise, I have been getting up at 5am just to go into work!  But for the rest of the week I am going hardcore.  Here is my plan of attack:

Thursday – Boot Camp
Friday – 4+ k run
Saturday – Body Pump
Sunday – 4+ k run

Welp, I am off to watch Survivor and catch up on some blog reading.  Have a great night!


  • What is your favourite kind of icing?

Mine is buttercream, hands down!  Love it!

  1. So not weird at all – cream cheese and jelly is my favorite combo!

  2. OMG how did you restrain yourself with that cake? I would not have been able to haha. And I’m with ya on loving the icing in the middle 🙂

  3. Um, I’m going to need to have a piece of that cake. And I do mean the entire thing. I am obsessed with chocolate cake with MINT icing. I know, I’m probably the only one, but it is like crack.

  4. Awesome cake!!! I have a thing for tall cakes like that one! 😀

  5. Brittany @ Itty Bits of Balance

    That cake is MASSIVE! The size of a head, just how I like em 😀

    And congrats on finishing your magazine! It seems like quite a time-consuming job

  6. CAKE is my favorite dessert, hands down! Love it! Could you send that cake to me in Ga? lol Buttercream is the best icing fo sho!! Oh and I love me some Body Pump!!! 🙂

  7. I would have eaten that entire gigantic piece of cake in no time flat! I have no restraint when baked goods are around. Especially any kind of banana baked good…yum!! I pretty much love all kinds of icing. I have this weird obsession with the rainbow chip icing that comes in a can, though. I think it’s Betty Crocker maybe? Anyways, it’s delicious and reminds me of being a kid and school bday parties!

  8. A cake is just a vessel to get icing into my mouth.

    I like buttercream bet but cream cheese is a close second.

  9. Buttercream 100% for sure yes… that’s my favorite 🙂 I am pretty sure that was not even english, I just had to tell my answer quickly because I was so excited! haha
    Cream cheese does follow closely though 🙂


    also, my friend had almond flavored buttercream on her wedding cake. it was magical.

  11. Buttercream!! The cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery in NYC had the best buttercream icing I’ve ever had in my loife.

    Your boyf deserves some serious credit for snagging a piece of cake that big!



  12. I love a good cream cheese frosting. Yum. Something about it. Which is weird, because I can’t stand cream cheese any other way?

    Love that size cake 😉

  13. My favorite frosting is cream cheese frosting!!! Preferably on top of red velvet cake 😉

  14. I’m a lover of buttercream or cream cheese frosting. And I would have had a VERY hard time just taking a sliver of that piece of cake. You’re a stronger woman than I.

  15. Bulletin, boooo. I know how much time that sucka takes you and how annoying it can be. Yay to being done! I know, personally, writing for it is a pain in the butt.
    I totally eat cream cheese and jam bagels. Not weird at all.
    Holy cake batman!! That is one big sucka! I too am not a fan of fruit filling between the cake. I like just icing. I LOVE icing. Dang! That just reminded me I forgot to take home a cupcake from my girls’ night tonight. Booooo.
