    So I decided that I had to have a birthday cake tonight but rather than going & buying an iced cake I have been to Tesco's & bought two Finest Millionaire Muffins (thinking the syns would be less) how WRONG can one person be...I have just synned them up & they come out at 25 syns per cake - holy c**p, does anyone know if a 'normal' birthday cake would be less - although what I am going to do with these two I have no idea but flippin' eck 25 syns that's a little excessive isn't it??

    Yes these muffins are terrible....I was watching one of the diet programs on tv and they had about 5-6 products and the muffin was even more unhealthy than the nice glazed cinnamon roll!

    Do you know what I think is most shocking though is that 18 months ago I wouldn't have thought about what it contains I would have bought two & probably eaten bith of them using the 'it's my birthday so I can do what I want' mentality - they should carry a health warning!!!

    I went out and bought a chocolate fudge cake from Costco (thank goodness it was too heavy) and I only ended up having a very thin slice and gave the rest to my guests to take home and some to the neighbours!

    Yikesssssss, how can you fit in the wine :eek: when there's so many syns in the cake!

    In our house we all have birthday tea (usually KFC as they aren't allowed it any other time) & birthday cake.

    Would a basic sponge cake with tarted up with candles be less syns.

    Or eat the muffins & just allow for it out of your 'weekly' syn allowance.

    I synned a Sainsburys chocolate birthday cake to 6 syns I think it was per portion (the one that serves 18)...the slice was a nice decent wedge too.

    thats not too bad, it was my mums surprise party on saturday and we forgot to cut the cake and hand it out, there were 2 cakes as well, and they are both now in the house. I had a slice of one on Sunday and it was yummy, its so tempting. Not sure how many syns are in it though, that one was just a normal iced cake, sponge, with jam in it???

    looks like the asda cake is a lot more fatter than the sainsburys one :O

    Both the Asda & the Sainsburys sound like you get more for the mouthful - I should have had one of them instead and I am also going out for a curry on Friday - my syns this week are going to be hellish!

    I had a birthday cake from a cake shop made with fondut icing and butter cream.My god... i think even without the icing it was about 10 syns. but totally worth it. Not having alot of sugar and fat in my diet i could really taste it
