happy birthday roger!



Today is my hubby's birthday... Happy Birthday Roger! We had a great birthday weekend and had a wonderful brunch (eh-hem... made by me), visited the Vancouver Art Gallery, took in a movie (yes, we saw Hot Tub Time Machine in all its 80's cheesiness), went for a lovely dinner at a french bistro and had some cake. Here is the cake I made... um, not from scratch, since I don't really bake. Do you recognize the character?... it is Cheburashka! (I had posted about him a couple of months earlier here). Well, I can't say I would ever win any cake decorating awards here, since bake is not my forté, but, hey... I tried. You will be happy to know most of it has already been eaten, though.

And a very Happy Birthday Roger.
Sounds like you both had a lovely weekend celebrating life, which is what a birthday is all about.
The cake is cute, maybe not quite as furry as Cheburashka, but then who wants to eat a furry cake? As long as it's yummy and, in my viewpoint, anything chocolate HAS to be yummy...considering that your cake has been mostly eaten proves my point. :)

Looks delicious! Hope Roger's birthday was a happy one!

When we were kids my mom actually made those elaborately frosted Strawberry Shortcake character cakes (which they sold as kits in the store).
