Here's How To Have Cake Whenever You Want

Some people meal plan smoothies; I meal plan cake.

*Speaking from personal experience.

Step one: Get a cake. Doesn't matter if you bake one yourself or buy one.

This ~fancy~ thing of beauty is the old-fashioned chocolate cake from Little Pie Company in New York — but there's no shame in Costco sheet cake or the boxed stuff!

Step two: Cut that cake.

Pro tip: To get even slices, score the cake where you're going to make your cuts before slicing all the way through.

And you know the thing where you "even out" a cake by just cutting away little slivers and eating them? Can't do that when the rest of the cake is still frozen. Built in portion control, guys.


*Optional:* After slicing the cake, put saran wrap or wax paper between alternating slices to prevent them from sticking back together before freezing.

Yeah, I cut my slices on the large size. Get off my back, Mom.
