My family actually managed to keep secrets and threw me a surprise birthday party! I can honestly say that yesterday was one of the best days of my life--and I've had some really good ones!
Apparently there was quite a bit of discussion regarding a cake. Even though my mom displayed amazing cake skills while we were younger, she didn't feel up for the challenge of creating a birthday cake for a cake maker. In the end...
My favorite cake--a good old fashioned southern Lickin' Cake. Six layers of yellow cake with a layer of fudge in between each one and then
covered drenched in fudge.
It was delicious! And perfect.
I have the most amazing family and friends in the whole wide world.
It was an outstanding celebration of my 40th trip around the sun!
