Cake & Pie

Happy Birthday to me!

Pie? Cake!

Sunday at Ferragosto, we tried to find a bakery to have birthday pastries in. Since it was raining, they were all pretty crowded, so we needed a plan B. Luckily, Jon and I live one block away from Magnolia Bakery.......

I'm not sure how we all still had room for cake after all that food, but somehow, we each found just enough stomach real estate to fit in a GENEROUS slice of one of the best cakes I've ever had. Holy yummy red velvet with buttercream frosting, Batman! I usually am kind of indifferent about cake – a few bites and I'm good – but this one... THIS was GOOD CAKE.

I've never seen anyone frown when they are presented with their birthday cake. I think that no matter how many birthdays you celebrate, you never get tired of seeing your name in icing. It makes you feel... just really really good. I was super flattered and grateful to have gotten a birthday cake from Magnolia, and it cemented the fact once again, that I have the most best family ever.

Then, as per usual, the family birthday picture. It only took us a few tries to get it right.
