birthdays and chocolate




Three cheers for long weekends! {It's a holiday here in Canada tomorrow.} This weekend is extra special for me, as it's my mom's birthday tomorrow, and I am baking her a cake! My mom is usually the one that makes ALL the cakes for every birthday, and this year I thought I would do the honours. So on the cooling racks right now are two layers of good lookin' chocolate cake. I can't wait for her to take the first bite! {complete with my special ingredient in the icing...cherry flavoured brandy, YUM!}

The holiday for us is considered Family Day, and I hope that all of you celebrate a little with your family, and that long or short, your weekend is fantastic!

Thanks Lynn! I can't wait to taste some cake later :) i feel very blessed to have an extra day to celebrate family day, and think it should be in every province! Maybe regardless of it being a holiday, you can make it special somehow, even if it's just with your bf. Who doesn't love a little reason to have fun?!

hope you are having a wonderful weekend :)
