I'm happy to say that I did keep my commitment to myself and did not overeat on Easter. My family has been great and there wasn't even any chocolate around for me to be tempted with. Daddy got me one Cadbury egg per my request. It's just not Easter without a Cadbury egg. I was in charge of dessert for our dinner, like I am every year. I typically make a lamb shaped cake but I knew that if I did that I'd end up making that awesome butter cream that I used for Anna's baby shower cake and that was just entirely unhealthy. Since we have both diabetics and non-diabetics, I made a sugar free dessert and a regular one. The sugar free dessert was pretty yummy. I'm not sure the name of it but it's layers of sugar free chocolate cake cubes with SF chocolate pudding, SF toffee candy pieces, and SF Cool Whip, and then all the layers repeated a second time. It went very well.
|Dessert from the top. When I was growing up we used to have some kind of egg dye that you put drops of it on top of the water and swirl it around to create a marble-type effect on the eggs. I tried to recreate that idea with this dessert.|

|Our non-sugar free dessert was based on cake pops. I didn't want to put them on sticks so I just made cake egg ball thingies.|
