My birthday flowers and cake...


Here is my birthday cake that I made and the flowers that Waqar sent me from Oman. I got two bouquets and was wondering why. When I called to thank him; he was surprised that I got two and we deduced that he did not get confirmation on the first order so he ordered from another online company. He told me to enjoy as it cost him and arm and a leg!! Thank you Honey!

Here is the cake after most of us got into it. My two did not like the 7 minute frosting which is much like meringue. My Dad, sister and BIL and two nieces loved it!

Here is my piece. I really wanted coffee with it! I never put a thick enough layer in the center of my cakes for fear of using up all the icing or frosting! I put the fresh strawberries in there. Nice touch.

This was the white bouquet. It really is beautiful! The other one is a dozen roses in red, yellow, pink and lavender.
