How sweet are kids (and cupcakes) i would tell her how amazing she was and tell her you will share it with her break it up into pieces and just pretend to eat it before you know it she will have scoffed the lot if she's anything like my little boy - no harm done

i came across the same problem today. My 7 yr old son performed a mother's day assembly and they presented us with a daffodil and a fairy cake at the end.

I just explained to him that mommy doesn't eat cakes anymore and asked if he'd like to eat it instead. To which he was delighted!! haha

You could say it's gorgeous and a real treat and you will save it for last thing to have with a cuppa before bed... as the perfect end to Mothers Day. Then tell her next morning how yummy it was. Little white lie?

It is so hard to say no, but I think you have had good advice in sharing it or saving it. I am hoping I do not get chocolate for mother's day, but if I do I will share and hope they will all go with not one passing my lips!!!!!!

What a sweetie... who needs cakes when we have kids like that? Have a fab mum's day!!!!
I take photos when the kids make something and then they happily eat it,after promising they will make it again when I am off the diet :)
yeah they are really nice, Id like one too!!

Your daughter sounds like a little sweetie, bless her cottons! I bet you are well proud of her :)
Its a hard day for mums this weekend. Good luck to mums everywhere who are trying to keep on track.

I work with students and they made cupcakes for their mums this week and there were loads left over but I didnt take one I would have regretted it. Freeze it and tell your daughter you will eat it when you have lost a little weight.

Good luck
