So here’s the birthday cake I made for Gruff. When you say the words “birthday cake” to a diabetic, we automatically start thinking of how we can oomph it all up to there’s a whole lotta bang in a single serving. From the bottom of the slice on the left to the top on the right, you have chocolate cake, dark chocolate buttercream frosting, cheesecake (genius, huh), cherries, chocolate cake, and a thick smear of dark chocolate frosting. There was ice cream as an option, for anyone wanting to guarantee the evening would end in a diabetic coma. Boom.
This birthday cake has been brought to you by the makers of Lantus Solostar insulin, when you absolutely have to celebrate but your pancreas isn’t up to the challenge. Lantus, for people with the self-control of a mosquito.
