Birthdays are kind of a big deal in my book.
I take birthdays pretty seriously.
We’re celebrating my husband’s birthday today - his actual birthday is tomorrow but he’s got dental school finals next week so tomorrow is dedicated to studying.
I created a little spread on the dining room table of the cards and his gifts. I put everything in one box which I’m now regretting as it takes away from the splendor of getting multiple birthday gifts.
I call this cake rustically frosted. I’m no professional but the strawberry flower makes me smile alot.
I also made the cake and frosting from scratch, because that’s how I roll.
