birthday bonanza!

What better way to end a week than with a birthday celebration! This wasn’t just any birthday, but rather one for our little, well I guess not so little nine-year old pup…
No birthday would be complete without a vanilla cake baked from scratch and filled with a glorious vanilla custard between the layers… Topping off this towering delight, a light buttercream frosting [this was for the adults though, plain for the pups]!
After a little singing, blowing out candles, photo-ops including birthday hats and the opening of presents, it was then time to cut into the cake. The birthday boy and his brother both got to enjoy some cake, while we did as well, but also had cleanup duties…

we let her eat cake…

For a birthday celebration this past weekend, the birthday girl was surrounded by her family and was able to enjoy delicious foods and company!
Many delightful dishes graced the table and everyone enjoyed themselves fully, but then it was that time… yes the time that makes everyone cringe… the cake! We all know too well that when the cake comes out, so does the dreaded birthday song, but like a trooper the birthday girl just blushed and accepted it. The cake was our present to her… a moist and delicious three layered chocolate cake with a salted caramel icing/filling!
She blew out her candles… even though there were only two, that was satisfactory and they did their part. Wonder what she wished for…
