Today is my favourite day of the year, the day I get another year older! On Saturday, we had a dinner party at our place to celebrate my and Gordon's birthdays. My friend Ronna made me the most wonderful cake I have EVER seen! And it was delicious, too... chocolate cake with chocolate chunks and ganache.
It's me and Gordon snuggled up with all our pets! Yep, two dogs, four cats (including kitten with tail-tip snapped off!), a gecko, ducks, ducklings, chickens, honeybees and two mice. It was a chocolate cake and all the decoration was done with fondant.
We were beyond thrilled! What an amazing cake.
I am lucky to have such a great, talented friend.
Gordon looks almost as happy about his cake as he did about his kitten!
Isn't it fabulous? For more pics and details, visit Ronna's blog!

This morning, Gordon brought me toast cut into the shape of a crown (pictures later.) Then I got apple pancakes and bacon, earrings, a new purse, jelly beans and an i-Phone, which means I can finally retire my eight-year-old monochrome cell phone!
We are going snowshoeing today, then Thai food for dinner! Eases the pain of edging ever-closer to the half-century mark. :)
