A few weeks ago, while attending a shower for a friend of ours, Tara handed me her cell phone and told me her husband wanted to talk to me. This was a bit odd as Mike and I have never chatted on the phone before, but I politely took the phone and hoped Tara didn't think we were having an affair. Knowing that I was making the cake and cupcakes for his daughter's upcoming birthday, and knowing that his lovely wife's birthday was the day before the party, Mike asked if I would please make a birthday cake for Tara. I felt like a heel for not thinking of it myself, and gladly agreed! Mike said he just wanted something simple to recognize Tara's special day, but I had other plans. Mike had just given Tara a Michael Kors purse a few weeks prior and she LOVED it. I took that as my cue and created this little piece of edible art for one of my best friends. Inside is chocolate cake with chocolate cream cheese icing. YUM!
I think Mike was pretty happy wit the cake... He hugged me at least twice and thanked me a bunch of times and then left some darling comments on the pictures I posted. I can't wait for next year!
I baked my first cookie at the age of 5, and have been in love ever since. The smiles on people's faces when they taste my creations is what keeps my passion alive!
