Happy {belated} Birthday Dad

BD's dad turned 60 last Sunday and even though I'm a week late, I wanted to wish him Happy Birthday! He is the most wonderful father I know. I can only pray that BD will be half as patient and loving with our own children.I'm on strike with my oven at the moment {long story, but we've had a rather difficult falling out and the situation is still too sensitive to talk about here}, however my sister let me help break in her new kitchen with this gorgeous almond cake with chocolate ganache frosting. I wish I had a piece right now...

Yum! I knew I shouldn't have let that cake leave my house. Ditto on the belated birthday wishes to Lee, he really is the best! Not many people would have had the patience to let a 10 year old go to town with his power tools, all for a little Pinewood Derby car? Thanks again BD fam and here's wishing your Dad many more chocolate cakes to come.

The cake was as awesome as it looks. Of course to maintain my slim profile, I had to eat a piece each day for several days after the big shindig. Thanks Gina. I didn't know that cake had such a high falutin name - no wonder it was so good. Thanks to everyone and thanks especially to my wonderful family for their love and support. It was a very nice time.
