A hearty Happy Birthday to Varnafinde! Hoping it's a very special day for you, Varna. :ymhug: I'd love to give this to you in person, but virtual will have to do for now ...

Aaahh, the beauty of mallorn leaves. ♥

:)) Now, that's a donut! I wonder if the baker had to place it in flames for the writing to appear. ;) Or if you eat it, will you become invisible? :P
It does look scrumptious
! :D

Happy birthday, SnowAngel!

(And Varna and jo, from a few days ago. You know, I was looking at angel food cake mixes on that very day, jo; I could have had one for you, if I had only remembered. Favourite way of celebrating, that is--eat a cake for someone who isn't there)

Hope you're having a very happy birthday today, SnowAngel! Since you're such a big fan of When Calls the Heart, here's a heart-shaped cake for your special day. :D (Yum, red velvet!)

;)) aileth, Snow Angel's cake's is adorable!

And ;)) re the angel food cake!


aileth wrote:Favourite way of celebrating, that is--eat a cake for someone who isn't there

:)) Indeed! I'm just glad I was there for my own afc! heeheehee

Oh my, that red velvet lusciousness looks scrumptious, Rose!

And here is my contribution for your birthday, Snow Angel. Wishing you a most wonderful day (sorry I'm a day late :ymblushing: ). I was looking for an angel on a snow cake, but couldn't find a suitable one, so the skiing snowman (cute, eh?) will have to do.
;)) :ymhug:

Thank you for cakes and good wishes!
I think I should be safe with eating that doughnut ring - it's wearing it that might be risky ...

One question about your cake, jo - is it possible that the cake decorator may have put the pattern upside down before adding the text? I haven't tried reading it, which is when I would find out - but there's something about the profile of those letters ...

It didn't ruin the cake in any way, though! :ymhug:

Happy birthday, dearest of Aunties! (aka coracle) ImageI suppose it is over for you by now, but then it is no different than last year - as you will remember, last year's celebration was much, much later. (Such a pleasure, too)

Happy birthday, coracle! I hope you had a wonderful day. :ymhug: A little belated, but here's an ocean-hued, lily-topped cake that looks like it could've been inspired by your username! :ymparty:

:)) Totally. That's how unobservant I am. The script does look upside down. :P Wups, lol! :ymblushing:

Haha, what an adorable cake for coracle, aileth! :D And, indeed, what a privilege and pleasure to celebrate coracle's birthday (albeit belated) with her last year. B-) But those Aslan cupcakes were so worth it, though, eh? :D

Rose, that's quite stunning! I wonder if the creator was inspired by the lily sea in TVotDT ... B-)

And to complement that beauty, here is a cutie for you, hobbit cuz. I know I've posted this before, but it just fits you so well, dear coracle. Many happy returns ... realizing I should'a posted this yesterday, our time, which would'a been your actual birthday, your time. ;)) Blessings on you this coming year!
