Altruistic. It’s one of the characteristics I strive to posses and desire for others to see in me. No one is ever going to say that you are too kind, too caring, or too giving in life. Putting others first and spreading joy and love is what brings me true happiness.
Cake is for celebrating friendship. Cake is for Mondays. Cake is for breakfast. Cake is for sharing. Cake is for bringing out smiles. Cake is for making your worries disappear. Cake… it’s not just for birthdays anymore.
I was pretty sure July started yesterday, but the calendar keeps telling me we are 20 plus days into the month. What!? I don’t want to but you know I have to say it… Time flies when you’re having fun! I thought those 28 days of February lasted an eternity, yet here we are in my favorite month of July and it’s just about disappeared on me before I could notice.
I think it’s summer, like for real summer. Where the days feel endlessly long, jackets are no longer required, and time spent outdoors is nothing but enjoyable. And believe me I plan to make the most of this time of year, savoring every second of sun and warmth I can.
My lovely friend is turning 30 and that right there deserves a cake… or maybe 3… and a drink! If I’m making a birthday cake I like to make something fitting to the recipient. This cake was inspired by the color mint green, cause really it’s just her color.
It may be snowing where you live today, but according to the calendar it is Spring! I know, I know, the flakes that are falling from the sky and the 14 degree windchill are not very convincing that this is actually Spring. But have you noticed the fruit in the grocery store? It’s starting!
