Happy birthday, Haddy! I hope you have a most marvellous day! This could be challenging given that I’m 1800 kilometres away, but give ‘er a go.
On the weekend, Rosie Beaucoup and I found this delightful photo of you on the day you were born:
And then this delightful photo of us together:
The nice thing about this year’s birthday cake is that you actually got to eat it. Actually eating a cake is way better than just looking at pictures. Of course, most of my readers would say that looking at photos of cake is way better than actually baking one. I inspire laziness.
As requested: three layers of lemon infused cake topped with lemon swiss meringue buttercream.
No fudge, coleslaw or miniature corn, as I know you despise those things. (Though miniature corn would have fit the colour scheme perfectly.)
Don’t you think the border is reminiscent of the seashore? Do you know what reminiscent means? It’s like redolent. Anyhoo, given how much we both love the ocean, it seemed appropriate.
I hope you have your best year ever…
