it got me thinking about how lucky i have been to have had birthday cakes made for me EVERY year by my mother right up until the time i left home (at 21).
there have been a few lean years inbetween, but pretty much since my 40th, my dear friend tara (who is also the daughter of a baker!) (HANDY!) has surprised me with a birthday cake.
she is of the firm belief, that it ain't no birthday without cake.
this is my 40th birthday cake. it's actually worthy of its OWN post. i'm pretty sure this was tara's idea, but it took 3 of them to pull it together.
a year later at my very first quiz night. tara probably had a hand in this one too (that's her in the left back)
the kids made this one. they were so cute trying to be secretive, and giving the game away all at the same time...because i will be WITH you on your 30th birthday amanda, there just HAS to be cake! josh - you're on notice!!!
see you on your birthday amanda!!!
