three little piglets went to market...

three little piglets, piggles, pinky and porky...were on their way to the market...



when they were stopped suddenly by a strange man holding up a cake...he introduced himself as Mr. D...

Mr. D was going on and on about some sort of ultimate ice cream cake...although Mr. D was very strange, piggles, pinky and porky loved ice cream and cake...so they stayed and listened to him talk about these ultimate cakes...

Mr. D began describing the flavours of cakes he had...piggles was most interested in the turtle rawk...he mentioned something about some goddess heathy's chocolate ice cream, her vanilla ice cream and her vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce, her chocolate buckwheat crispies and chocolate brownies, pecans and chocolate sauce and caramel sauce...

then, as if the encounter wasn't strange enough, Mr. D broke out into a song and dance, (he was pretty excited about his turtle rawk cake), the song went something like this:

when i'm feeling blue, all i have to do is take a bite of you...then i'm not so blue...lalalala...

let's rawk...everybody let's rawk, everybody do the chocolate turtle rawk...come on everybody let's rawk...lalalala...

Mr. D then said something piggles thought was really funny..."this cake will really put the happy in your dance..."...and went on to show piggles various steps of putting together the cake...

and the final product...a lovely rich and decadent marbled cake, with chocolate ice cream and chocolate brownie chunks, vanilla ice cream, caramel ice cream...and a layer of chocolate buckwheat crispies, chocolate fudge sauce, caramel sauce and chocolate dipped pecans...

piggles took one bite out of the turtle rawk cake, and suddenly started to do a happy dance...and he started to sing the turtle rawk song...it was THAT good...and he told his brothers that the cake was dreamy...and he would dream about this day for the rest of his life...

pinky was pretty excited...so he asked Mr. D if he had a pink cake with strawberries...and Mr. D lit up...gave pinky a big smile...and said "i have something that is going to make you one very happy pink piglet, summer stRAWberry shortcake...he started talking ingredients, and almost lost poor little pinky...it went something like this..."strawberry ice cream: 1.5 cups of cashews, 1.5 cups of water and 1 tbsp of lecithin, vanilla ice cream: 1/4 cup of coconut butter, and again he mentioned the goddess heathy and her wonderful whip cream, blonde crunchies with an addition of 2 tbsp of coconut butter, strawberry sauce, 1/2 cup of strawberries, 1/4 cup of water, 2tbsp of agave..."...finally Mr. D stopped talking, and pulled out the most beautiful ice cream cake pinky had ever laid eyes on, she was prettier than strawberry shortcake herself...

pinky was so happy...he also did a happy dance...

porky, a bit of a grumpy little piglet, looked Mr. D in the eye and said..."Mr., i don't really care about your stories...all i want is something fresh and crisp and chocolatey...please!"...Mr. D pulled out something that porky had been dreaming of his entire life...and he didn't even hear the words that came out of Mr. D's mouth..porky was too busy drooling..."this here porky is a mint chocolate chocolate chunk ice cream cake, with goddess heathy's chocolate ice cream with an additional ingredient of 2 tablespoons of coconut butter, mint ice cream with goddess heathy's vanilla ice cream base, no vanilla, 1/2 a cup of packed mint and 2 tsp mint extract, chocolate chunks, goddess heathy's chocolate crispies, cacao nibs, and goddess heathy's chocolate sauce and whip cream on top..."...

all of a sudden this big mean looking monster appeared...looked at the piglets and licked his lips..



porky grabbed the cake right out of Mr. D's hands...grabbed piggles and pinky and they ran and happy danced all the way home...and all of the piglets remembered goddess heathy for the rest of their lives...and always secretly wished to meet her...fall in love with her and marry her...so that they would never be without their beloved ice creams cakes...

the end

have a sweet sweet night...

  19. Hey lovely,
    Yes, I have considered a gluten allergy and actually, I eliminated all gluten from my diet at the onset of my current flare up, except for oats, and I only have 1/3 cup per day at most, or 1/4 cup steel cut. I've considered cutting them out or switching to certified gluten free, but haven't decided yet. Thanks for informing me about the privacy setting on the blog, although I don't think I'll use it because I've made such great connections through blogging and love my bloggie friends so much too. I wouldn't want to close it off...was just trying to make a point!
    Loved your little operation beautiful note at the end, and really appreciated your sweet comments.
    Hope you had a lovely day and have a good night xo
