Your answer was helpful; sympathy is nice, and knowing people have the same problems helps.
Last time my 9 day fast ended due to social obligation, although it wasn't as much of a disappointment since I'd planned 10 days. I'm planning 14 days now, and I'm on day 4.
Thankfully, the matter's been resolved - my husband, who's much calmer about fasting since I've done it once before with no repercussions, is supporting me in cheerfully continuing to fast. I figure I'll toast with water. :)
Baking the cake will be tricky, though. I've dreamed twice that I popped a chunk of it into my mouth thoughtlessly and then thought "OH NO MY FAST!".
