I wanted to share with you the surprise birthday cake that David had made for me. I'd say this "themed" cake was quite appropriate!
It just 'screams' me, no? Well.. actually it is screaming Martha.. My friend Elaine in California also made me a cake! She nailed it on the head with another "theme" that speaks to one of my passions.
A wonderful dirt cake! The photograph was so well styled too! Notice the hint of fabulous blue ribbon on the right? Thank you Elaine for your creativity and your thoughtful gesture!
If two cakes weren't enough, my pal Mike decided that cookies (my favorite chocolate chip recipe no less) were in order. These are fantastic! If you've not tried Alexis' chocolate chip cookies (you can find the recipe in the cookie book) you've got to try them! Crispy yet chewy.. perfect!
Can someone ask for a better possible present?!
The birthday festivities have now concluded. See you back here next year.
