Beware the icing on the cake!

Beware the icing on the cake!

If you are faced with a succulent piece of cake, and simply can’t resist indulging, then there is one way to cut the calories on that slice quiet easily – remove the icing. This is not an easy thing to do for icing lovers, but it will reduce the calorie count by well over a hundred calories, which is quite a lot if it is a single slice of cake.

Looking at icing brands, on average two teaspoons of icing amounts to 140 calories, so removing the pretty cake covering will help to reduce the guilt – which is always good.

So your new etiquette when faced with a slice of lovlieness is to peel off the cover – reveal the basic cake underneath and save over 100 calories in the process – tuck in!
