This cake ROCKS!!! I will not even mention how much of it I have eaten in two weeks.
I decided that I probably should not even make it for awhile. And for your freezing philosophy, doesn't work.
I actually go get it out and eat it frozen or defrost.
Isn't that pathetic??? I keep thinking about how good you and Sandi are eating and I want to smack myself. I do really well all day and then at night my resolve comes down. I always was a late night snacker. I try to eat nuts or once in a while have popcorn. I have been on this diet for over three years and the going has been very slow and somedays I am just plain sick of everything I am allowed to eat.
My only problem is the icing. I have tried it twice and I don't know what I am doing wrong. It is very, very good, but the consistency is way off. There is no way that I could spread it on the cake. I don't want to cook the arrowroot and milk to long, because I think if it overheats it gets runny again. It seems to thicken up and I let it get plenty cold. Any thoughts?
I have been just letting it in a bowl in the fridge and heating the piece of cake for a few minutes and then putting the icing on top. It is wonderfully good. Oh, I also put all of the batter in one eight inch pan and it turned out great. I just baked it a little longer and tested with a toothpick. It was a little thicker like a true piece of cake.
