Birthday Cake!!

This is the first birthday cake that I have made and decorated myself, and I have to say I was very pleased with the results (Paul was too, he ate half the cake on his own). In between the 2 layers of cake was chocolate frosting mixed with cream cheese frosting, and the outside is the same combination except I added some Bailey's to it. I know, I know, why do I always have to add liqueur? Well, I just like the flavor it adds, you just can't go wrong with Bailey's or Amaretto. Since he will always be 18, those candles will last a long time. :)

I hope my hubby enjoyed his birthday weekend. I took him to the library to get some books, 2 for him, 1 for me, & 1 to read together. After the library, I surprised him with a picnic at a park with a pond, so I set up lunch & he read to me.

Then we went home & watched Phil, which was exciting 'cos he was in the lead. When that was over we did stuff around the house, then we just hung out with each other.

Today, Paul stayed home from golf, so he watched me bake his cake. Morning time with him is rare, so I really enjoy those moments. Since he stayed home we decided to go to a new Church that has a TLM at 9:30, usually we go at 12:30. It was beautiful, I think the Church is 100 years old or so. On our way home we stopped for lunch at an Italian place, they had a TV right in front of our table, that meant we were able to see how Phil was doing. He was doing really, really well.

Then Paul & I went home to finish watching the Championship and I decorated his cake. And guess what! Phil WON!!! Go PHIL!!

We went to dinner at Silky Sullivan's (Irish pub). Paul loves it there, and it's the only place he's guaranteed a Guinness. Next it was home to eat cake & open presents.

Paul really did eat half the cake himself, and he had a BIG dinner too. I don't know where he puts it. :)

** Paul, I hope you had a nice birthday. I love you.

Rita you are so talented. Your first cake, really? I would have never guessed. It also sounds delicious. I love cream cheese frosting.

Thank you so much for everything. And I LOVE YOU TOO!!

PS. It really was fun--can we do it again next weekend?

You know, I was going to invite you and Paul over for St. Pat's.

If you just want to stop by and get a plate for you two, that would be fine as well.

Love you both!
