I know! It is very frustrating and disappointing. When I first found out I was really upset. I have never eaten cake because I always was careful to eat healthy and to watch my weight. Two years after I started baking and having the cakes I baked I get this blow.
High cholesterol must run in my family because my daughter isn’t 100 pounds and is almost a Vegan and she has high cholesterol too.
The good thing that has come out of this experience is that I have expanded my baking repertoire. I have learned how to convert regular recipes, even Rose’s, with really positive results. I bought the book Cholesterol Down and made some changes. I was 110 when I started and now I am 108.
I still bake regular cakes for my husband and a low cholesterol/low saturated fat cake for me. He has been eating mine as much as he has been eating his.
Yesterday I baked the WOWIE CAKE Jeannie recommended. Everybody loved it, even my 250lb stepson and his 10 year old boy. They love all my baking and loved the Wowie Cake as well.
Thank you, so much, for asking
