It's a Birthday!!!!

Yep, today is The Tim's birthday!  Since we were away and took time off work for that, we are not taking the day off as usual.  But we shall celebrate nonetheless.

Birthday cake? Yep, though he requested a bundt cake with no frosting*, and a little bit of the cake top stuck to the pan.  However, chocolate cake with chocolate chips in is still festive and yummy.

Birthday presents? Also a yes, and hopefully a certain member of the family whose initials are ... Jetsam! will not be able to get to them, thereby chewing any bows, and tearing through the paper.

Birthday dinner? This will happen one way or the other, but it is up to the Birthday Boy to decide if he wants to go out this evening, or have something at home.

It's been busy around here, with our trip, the birthday, and then Thanksgiving next week.  But it's all fun stuff, which means it's a good kind of busy.

So Happy Birthday to my sweetie!



*Ahem.  Birthday cake is *supposed* to be a layer cake with frosting, as far as I"m concerned.  But the rule is that the person who is having the birthday gets to decide what kind of cake/dessert they would like to have ...

Happy Birthday to Tim! I'm with you on the layer cake and frosting. It should be a law.

Absolutely. Sit The Tim down, speak slowly and with small words if you must, and explain the birthday cakes DO NOT come from bundt pans!

Bridget- Happy Birthday to Tim- even if he does have odd taste in cake.

Happy belated birthday to The Tim! Isobel's was Friday, so we were festive here, too. Once we were "big" my mom stopped making the complicated teddy bear cake of our youth, and it was Streusel Swirl cake in a bundt pan - still very yummy, if not quite traditional. Isobel had Red Velvet Chiffon Cake in a "blooming rose" bundt pan topped with lots of cream cheese frosting, which kind of hid the rose effect but tasted divine.

Happy Belated Birthday, Tim!

Cake is merely a carrier for icing, you know. In other words: You're doing it wrong.

You don't care? No? Not at all? LOL! Happy Birthday!
