There were a couple cake queries amid the general drooling, longing, and congratulations to Hubby for selecting a winning birthday cake, so I thought I'd satisfy the curious among you out there in Blogland.
No, it is not a peanut butter cake. As much as I love peanut butter (particularly when combined with chocolate), that sounds a little too heavy to me. Not that this cake is much lighter though--it's MOCHA. Yum! Four layers of white cake goodness with a mocha filling alternating with a chocolate filling and a mocha frosting on the outside with a fudgy topping over that. Nope, not light at all. But really, really good!
But these are light--sort of!
Boy Boss is a very excellent baker--in fact, if for some reason the whole attorney thing doesn't work out for him, I think he could make a pretty good living as a baker. About a week before my birthday, he questioned me quite extensively about my favorite cake, which happens to be a white cake with white chocolate frosting and strawberries made by a local bakery. Boy Boss came up with an extremely credible version of that cake in these cupcakes--unfortunately, my photo isn't very good AND shows them a little the worse for wear after sitting out all day and then being driven home in a somewhat warm car. But take my word for it--they were really, really good! And there was a whole tray of them on my desk when I got to work that morning. Of course, I shared them with the office staff, but I still managed to get four home. Boy Boss also greeted me in the parking lot with a Starbucks iced latte. Pretty spoiled, huh?!
And Girl Boss II? On my desk was a card and three gifts all labeled. A floral arrangement (sorry, no photo!) was labeled "pretty gift." A wrapped package was labeled "practical gift"--that turned out to be the book about insomnia, something that's been troubling me lately. And a gift bag was labeled the "fun gift."
See the pink girl and blue boy there in the upper left? That was the fun gift--these guys wind up and dance. Cool, huh?! For her birthday a couple weeks ago, I got Girl Boss II a foam dart gun and told her I thought everyone needed a toy for their birthday--apparently she agreed! And the card in the photo was from her too--too funny!
I think I'm ALMOST done with my birthday week--except for Saturday night when we're going out to dinner with friends and maybe to a movie. Any recommendations for a good movie for men and women? I'm not even sure what's playing right now, so any input would be helpful!
Oh, and there's still cake left! Stop by and have some!
