1/12 of this cake contains 220 calories, 2 grams of fat, 0 saturated fat, 0 cholesterol, and 5.5 grams of protein.

Okay, now for the really bad part, the Cream Cheese Icing:

2 8-ounce containers of Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese
1 cup of vegan butter
1 16-ounce bag of organic powdered sugar (about 3 ¾ cup)

Put cream cheese and butter in a bowl and blend well with an electric mixer. Slowly add powdered sugar, and continue mixing until all the sugar is added and the icing looks smooth. Add this to the cake sparingly since it contains more calories than I care to calculate!
