I think cake will always scream "BIRTHDAY" to me. Pretty much every time I have it, that's what it's for.
I remember the cakes from all my years of birthdays. The chocolate cake my mom let me cover with pink sugary decorations from the grocery store. The petit fours we searched allowed for during my Samantha phase.
And the banana cake on my first birthday. Yes, a banana with a candle stuck in it. That one I might not actually remember but I'll definitely never forget.
This cake celebrates an incredibly special birthday. A new baby boy welcomed into the world today by two of my dearest friends and their darling little daughter.
I'm headed right now to meet him.
I wouldn't consider myself a little baby person per say. I don't reach for them the moment they enter the room. But this is one little baby I can't wait to get to know.
