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.

Step three: Stick it in a box or tupperware container so the cake doesn't get squished.

I'm peak lazy, so I just stuck it back in the box it came in.


Step five: When the ~mood strikes~ take a slice out of the freezer and stick it on a plate.

Unwrap the slice gently like the treasure it is.

Leave it on the counter to thaw for about 30-45 minutes until it reaches room temperature.
