Perspective - or depends on how ya look at it!

NOTE - sorry for the odd spacing - good old Blogger was not cooperative today.


Looking down on this luscious three layer coconut cake - you see such pretty primary color decorations. No particular significance to it - just yumo cake.















The other side is a dead giveaway - yep - it was a birthday cake. A Buhlaland - three layer buttery fluffy birthday cake. Was it for DH? Nope - his birthday is in January. Was the cake for a visitor? No - a permanent resident.


Hmm just who was the recipient of a cake of birthday celebration?


The chubby little blonde being held still by the best big brother in the world. Yep - it was my birthday last week. The "baby" picture was when I was one - 61 years ago. So we celebrated the anniversary of my birth by being taken out to a fabulous dinner and ice cream evening by our dear friends, The Harper family.





I like my own cakes, I baked one and shared it with our other dear friend - Carrie. She came out on Saturday unaware it was the post birthday date. We enjoyed mexican food she brought and lots of cake. We saved a slice for you! It is good to share cake on Buhlaland and it was a good birthday!

Happy belated birthday! Thanks for saving me a slice...yummy! I watched Alton Brown make a coconut cake the other day, and I've made a couple myself, though not in a while. What kind of cake was in the middle?

Oh Pam - it was our favorite - the wonderful Wacky Chocolate cake - my DH loves chocolate so I put it in the middle for him.

Happy Belated Birthday! Home made cakes are the best. As I get older I like boxed cakes less and less. Have a very happy year.
