Remember that chocolate cake I made the other day?  The one where I stacked two (single-layer) slices on top of each other to make a bigger slice?  Keep in mind that it was a new recipe, and it wasn’t from a healthy foods cookbook.  It used a lot of sugar.

After sitting down to eat my slice of cake, I soon found out that this tasty cake was actually too sweet for me to eat a large amount.  I knew if I did, I would be facing extreme sugar overload.  Wow.

Here’s a picture of how much of that slice was left:

I made a chocolate cake from scratch.  It hadn’t made a cake (especially from scratch) in so long, I had to go to the store just for a package of powdered sugar.  I used recipes from the Dining on a Dime cookbook.  Since they were new recipes (for me), I cut the cake and icing recipes in half. I filled a round cake pan, and when serving it, put two slices on top of each other.

I finally got around to propping up my tomato plant and a green bean plant.  They’d been flopping over and the tomato plant had been shadowing another bean plant.  As temporary stakes, I used broken sticks.
