|So it was my Daddy's birthday recently. I got him this card.|
|Dad's birthday cake. I'm not a fan of this cake as it has these pastry layers in the center that I am not a fan of. Just weird to have crispy pastry in the middle of soft moist cake.|
|A lot of birthdays to go to lately. I went here to look for a gift for our friends who have triplet girls. I am clueless when it comes to shopping for some kids. I think it's been so long since I was a kid that I no longer know what kids like.|
|Wandering the aisles for a bit unsure of what one year olds would be into.|
|This was made from Legos. Pretty cool!|
|Finally managed to pick some stuff out and got it all wrapped up. I impress myself sometimes...just kidding.|
|Look how cute the triplets' cake was. So adorable. Triplets' mom is so creative. Had a nice time at birthday party. Craziness with so many people and kids there...screaming and yelling about cake..good grief!|
Sister S and I took Sister K out to lunch the day after she got back from Spain. Actually, it was more like they took me to lunch because this was my first time eating here at Julienne's in Pasadena. It is a really cute place for a nice meal. Look, they even use heirloom tomatoes in their sandwiches. That was a really good sandwich by the way.
We shared this really good almond cake drizzled with berry sauce. It was a nice finish to our meal. I am really looking forward to coming here for breakfast one of these days.
And I baked more vegan cupcakes. These were chocolate. I'm not really a big chocolate fan but people who like chocolate may like these. I think they would have been better with more of a mocha taste. I think I might try these again with the Cookies and Cream frosting. I am going to attempt to make a vegan tiramisu one and then a regular cupcake with vegan frosting. Stay tuned.
