DELICIOUS DESSERT THAT LOOKS SO F-ING EFFORTLESS & PRETTY…eer, ehhhhhh…shit. This one NEVER gets a check mark from me on Valentine’s Day.
Like, ever, ever.
Honestly though, making sure there’s a dessert ready for Michael, is just really the LAST thing on my mind.
Ok so, ready for my 2 minute cake to surpass all your expectations? Mmkayyyy? Like, are you ready to just die?
Presenting cake for the Suzy NO-MAKER:
You know how I wrote a whole chapter about ‘faking it until you make it’ in The Skinny Confidential Book?
This is it, guys.
My FAKE CAKE!
I’M SUCHHHHHH A CHEATER!!!
( By the way, for the record, Michael still has no idea I faked this cake. He ate it with hearts coming out of his eyes, exclaiming what ‘a fantastic woman’ I am! With a huge crumb-filled smile. He even asked for three servings of my ‘homemade cake.’ AND his sister, Jordan tried it & asked me for the recipe…true story. I sent her the above video & told her to zip her lips! ).
If you’re a babe on a budget, this cake is for YOU— it’s very inexpensive to make & looks supppper pricey when it’s done.
So. Here’s what you do: go to the market, grab a frosting-less cake ( Yes. They have these. If your local market doesn’t have these, go to another one because their cake game is OUCH ), & get some pretty flowers ( I choose pink & red roses ) and some cream cheese pre-made frosting. Pre-frosted cake looks like this:
At home, simply cut the flowers so the stems are about one inch long. Frost your pathetic/frosting-less cake & add flowers around the edges, in the middle, &/or where the F you want.
Ta-da: FAKE CAKE!
CHEATING ON VALENTINE’S DAY NEVER FELT SO GOOD!
Then make sure to tell everyone you’ve ‘been slaving away in the kitchen all day’ as you set your cake proudly on the table & sigh deeply while wiping fake sweat off your brow…#whitelie.
Do you guys have any easy-ass Valentine’s desserts.? : )
Happy Thursday! – Lauryn, xx
