Out of the blue this evening, the image of this very cupcake popped into my head and I knew I had to have one. Sooooo, my wonderful hubby ran to the grocery store and picked up a box of Devil’s Food Cake mix for me and I whipped up a batch, complete with homemade cream cheese frosting and red non-pareils. Perfection!!
I’ve only had cravings with my first and second pregnancies. With my daughter, I constantly craved angel food cake batter. I ate TONS of this stuff throughout my pregnancy with her. With our first son, all I ever craved was green peppers with blue cheese dressing. I took them to work with me at the funeral home every single day. I also forced myself to eat a banana everyday. One of the old timers I worked with despised both green peppers and bananas and he made no bones about how I thoroughly disgusted him by eating them.
Have you ever heard someone say that if you are pregnant and craving something, you should eat it or the baby will be born with a birthmark in the shape of the food you craved but didn’t give in to?! If thats the case, I’m glad I kept my kids from being born with a birthmark in the shape of an angel food cake or a green pepper! I read an article on msn the other day about a pregnant lady that craved roadkill of all things. In that instance, I hope she doesn’t give in although her poor baby may be born with a birthmark in the shape of a flattened possum.
