As I said below, it is birthday month. One of the things I miss most about being away from my family is celebrating all the birthdays and getting to eat yummy birthday cake. While I usually celebrate my birthday with friends, or even with family while on vacation somewhere, I hardly ever get birthday cake. Instead it is some decadent dessert from a restaurant (I’m not really complaining here, really).
With the exception of last year. The boyfriend went to 3 different grocery stores to find a small sheet cake (like an eighth of a sheet?) – white cake with white icing. We enjoyed it with a fine glass of red wine 🙂
But it’s October again, and I’m craving birthday cake. Will I be able to refrain from going to the store and buying a dozen cupcakes?
On a different note, the above image is by Wayne Thiebaud. I love the bright color in his paintings.
