Last week was my birthday!
I know, having a birthday means you just got older, but I can't help it, I am just giddy about birthdays. Mine, my kid's, my honey's, yours, I looooove birthdays! I love everything about birthdays. As a child I started planning for my birthday right after Christmas. When my kids were little, I would throw these big huge parties. The more my husband's eyes rolled the better. I like birthdays that go on forever. In fact my in-laws are taking us to dinner to celebrate tomorrow night, which means that the celebrations have been carrying on for 12 days now! Just how I like it!
Having a birthday means one of these yummy cakes. This little beauty is a Mrs. Backers Birthday Cake. The price of such a cake fluctuates with the precious metals market, hovering right between gold and platinum. I know what you are thinking, it looks a bit old fashioned but DO NOT judge! This is the yummiest pile of butter cream flowers you could ever dig your fork into. To be clear, I don't much care for the cake part, so when I tell you i LOVE this cake, what I am really saying is, I LOVE this frosting!! In fact I love this frosting so much that several years back, Kenn skipped the cake all together and just bought me a huge tub of frosting- Can you see why I am in love with this man? If a tub is a little tacky for you, you can just order a few dozen flowers and have them shipped to you! If you're into that kind of thing..... I totally am!
