Extra Cannoli Cream…

What me again?!?! That’s right! I’m posting twice on this beautiful Monday! I woke up at 4:45am thanks to Mike not shutting off his alarm. I tried to doze off but I just couldn’t handle it anymore. I had a small breakfast and headed out to the apartment gym. I did 20 minutes of cardio with the treadmill and then Jillian Michaels Shred It DVD. I was a sweaty mess but it felt oh so good!

I came back, made Mike some oatmeal and I made myself another breakfast… a protein shake! Then I decided to make the cannoli cream filling for his cake. So far this cake is coming out amazing but now I have a whole jar of cannoli cream… I’m thinking I should sell it before I decide to eat it. Oh and of course ALL the extra cannoli cream didn’t fit in that jar, so I had to spoon feed myself the extras, with the extra cake I cut off to layer it. Yeah cake at 10am, I must be crazy BUT at least I did get my workout in.

How much would you pay for this? Whole milk ricotta, powdered sugar, cinnamon and Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate shavings.



Almost done, it just needs the cream cheese/ whipped cream frosting and a little decoration.
I also placed it strategically near the lettuce, so I can remember to eat a salad today.. then cake. ;)

Well technically it is the last day to celebrate “summer.” Cannoli Cake is more a holiday cake but since Mike is a labor day baby we get to enjoy this cake early! Tomorrow is a new day but today is all about celebration!

I tried to make cannoli cream onetime and it was a FAIL! Probably for the best because I totally eat that whole jar!!
