For my daughter's birthday, I bought two little cakes from a local restaurant. They specialize in custom cakes and have these adorable little cakes available daily in about 10 different flavors. Each type is decorated differently. I got a Double Chocolate Caramel Truffle (chocolate cake flavored with Butterschnapps with buttercream between the layers and ganache frosting) and a Java Explosion ( the same but flavored with espresso instead of Butterschnapps). There was even a coffee bean on top of the Java cake that was dusted in gold. These are so delicious and I sometimes give them as birthday gifts to my friends.
This was such a treat to be able to celebrate with her --the first time we have been together for her birthday in 4 years. We are having such a nice visit and are so glad to have her home for a whole month.
