As an avid dessert lover, nothing beats the sugar rush of savouring a gorgeous slice of chocolate cake or digging into a refreshing fruit sorbet. For all the dessert fans out there with an incurable sweet tooth, just know that you are not alone.
We get it, desserts are like a taste of heaven. To us, having a bite of a perfectly made dessert is like falling in love; adrenaline, satisfaction, sheer happiness and all.
Before we get too excited, there are definitely “downfalls” of being a self-declared dessert enthusiast. Here are 8 Problems Only Dessert Lovers Understand – Must. Have. Cake.
#1 CHOCOLATE IS YOUR WEAKNESS
You can never resist a molten chocolate lava cake or pancakes or waffles drizzled generously with chocolate fudge. Chocolate is the answer to all your problems. It somehow makes all your problems go away. You can’t live without chocolate.
#2 DESSERTS AS A FULL MEAL
We’ve all done it, even though we might never admit it. When you go out to have a meal alone, you must have had to juggle between having a proper savoury meal or grabbing a whole stack of pancakes to yourself. At home, you just slice yourself a huge piece of cake for dinner. There is no shame! (Of course, our waistlines disagree.)
#3 YOU NEVER SKIP DESSERTS AFTER A MEAL
Don’t you hate it when you pile up on a meal and then you don’t have space for desserts? “Seasoned dessert lovers” know how to regulate their actual meals so that they have ample space in their tummies for desserts. Otherwise, you can also say, “there’s always room for desserts.”
#4 YOU ALWAYS HAVE A SWEET SNACK IN YOUR BAG
You always deny it, but you have a cupcake or a chocolate-covered donut hiding in your bag at any given time. Your bag always smells of heavenly desserts, which of course, has its pros and cons. However, it’s all worth it when your day is made better by finally savouring it.
#5 YOU SPEND ALL DAY THINKING ABOUT CAKE
You are in the office doing your own work, but all you can think of is cake. “Which cake should I buy after work?” “Where should I go for desserts during tea time?” These are some common questions that are extremely tough to shake off. We’ve all been there.
#6 SUGAR WITHDRAWALS
You are moody, you are tired and you just need some sugar for the soul. It is a tough life having to be without desserts and every day (or hour) seems like forever. Then, when you finally get something sweet, it is like water to a dying plant.
#7 YOUR LIFE WILL NOT BE COMPLETE WITHOUT CAKE
You know you could never be without desserts. Cake completes you so don’t fight it, embrace it. Even if you tell yourself you’re over it, the next thing you know, you’ll be scarfing down a whole cake.
#8 DESSERTS WILL INSTANTLY MAKE YOU FEEL HAPPY
Finally, you know desserts are just what you need to lift your spirits. Having a rough day at work? Eat dessert. Stressed out in school? Eat dessert. Had a row with your partner? Eat dessert. Mom’s nagging non-stop about you not packing your room? Eat dessert. The dress you wanted is not on sale anymore? Eat dessert. Time of the month? Eat dessert. Your highlighter isn’t on fleek? Eat dessert. Bored? Eat dessert. Must we go on, really?
