Yeah, I made my own birthday cake. Does that make me a complete micromanager? (Don’t answer that.) It’s just, I couldn’t help myself. I made chocolate cakes for my girls’ birthdays and frosted them with chocolate butter cream. Delicious and they didn’t last long. But for my own birthday I knew I had to have my almost holy pairing of chocolate cake with peanut butter butter cream. It is my best beloved. While I always wince a bit when another birthday comes around I was almost literally counting down the days until I could dig into this cake; it certainly helped ease the bite of another year ticked off on the inexorable march to the next decade (looming so close now).
