It is well known rule of thumb that it never snows after my dad’s birthday. I think this year we can safely say that will happen, so onward spring. To celebrate the big day I decided to whip this delicious chocolate (since cakes are my specialty and all, plus I love birthdays.) Like all good recipes, I found it here over at my favorite recipe gettin’ place epicurious.com, I will forewarn you though that the frosting is pretty rich, but oh so deelisseoso, (that’s how we say delicious at our house.)
During the house packing, in a fit of unconscious tossing , I decided to part with all of the random scraps of wrapping paper I had around, thus when I want to wrap something now I must get creative. For this special present I use the city pages and I whip up a handmade bow.
