Mmm, Fantasia!

A very happy and hobbit-y birthday to you, Jo! :ymhug: Here's a lovely slice of caraway seed cake for you to enjoy, which I think may be what Tolkien was referring to when he wrote about the hobbits' seed cakes in The Hobbit and LotR:

That seed cake looks great. I love lemon poppy seed cake/muffins.

Thanks so much, mm1991! :D

Today, wishing a very Happy Birthday to Varnafinde, who is a delight to know! :ymparty:

I thought this somewhat resembled a mallorn leaf cake. Enjoy the virtual tasting!

Thank you so much! Such lovely cake and cookies! :ymhug:

I celebrated the day with a shoppping spree at a nearby shopping centre - including a trip to the library :D

Also I had fun in the MouseHunt Game and was lucky to "win" a very rare item to use in a new mousetrap :p

Love the cookies, fantasia! Remember them when my birthday comes around next year again, particularly that Bag End door. ♥

Sounds like a fun day, Varna, especially the library trip. :D And cool winning the rare Mousehunt item!
