A birthday celebration just isn’t complete without cake. And oh, how I love cake! :) But it’s not about me! I made a strawberry cream cake for my gorgeous roommate Z to celebrate summer (and her birthday) and a rich, deep chocolate cake with mint chocolate chip frosting for D to celebrate our love for chocolate (and his birthday!).
D’s celebration was meant to be a surprise but it is hard to maintain secrecy when you’re stuck in a cramped room and when everyone goes to the back of the room giggling and whispering. Count the number of candles on the cake. heehee!
It was such a joy baking and celebrating with them, and even literally dreaming of the organization and execution of it all. I’m looking forward to MA’s birthday!
