And the icing on the cake (actually, there isn't any) (it's an idiom)
The problem with having our birthdays a day apart is the cake. Do we want to be extravagant and have two different cakes? Since Clint decided on something that I find particularly delicious--much more so than carrot cake--I graciously agreed to share our cakes this year. Probably didn't hurt my decision making process with the thought that due to my allergies, I haven't run in about a month. I don't want to have to work off two cakes. Plus the bread pudding with creme anglaise we made on Sunday. A few bites of that are in the fridge too. (blissful sigh). Enjoy.
Birthday candles and the cake: Williams-Sonoma's Flourless Chocolate Cake with fresh whipped cream and raspberry glaze. Does it get any better? I'm asking you.
