    Some people meal plan smoothies; I meal plan cake.

    Cake suits every mood. Bad day at work? Cake. Great day at work? Cake. Nervous about a date? Cake.

    Listening to the Hamilton soundtrack and crying? Cake.

    But sometimes it's midnight on a Thursday and you get ~that craving~.

    And say to yourself "I wish there was a way to have All Access 24/7 Cake within arm's reach."

    WELL THERE IS.*

    This is exactly how I make sure I can have a slice of cake whenever the eff I want:

    LIVING MY BEST LIFE TBH.

    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.

    Make it as airtight as possible.

    Step four: Stick that shit in the freezer.

    Next to the container of soup you're saving for your next illness.

    Hey, cake-filled freezer.

    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.

    *Do not leave cake unattended if you live with others*

    The best part? All the money you'll save on impulse dessert buys.

    $ of a whole cake divided by 12 slices < $ of a single cake slice.

    And most importantly, when you want cake, NOT HAVING TO LEAVE THE HOUSE.

    Cake good; pants bad.
