So, my birthday was last weekend and I hadn't planned to celebrate at all, since it was my 44th. Not a very exciting number!
But then my sister suddenly came home for a quick visit from the US to renew her visa. Both her sons/my nephews were suddenly released from jail (don't ask...)! And both my mother and my mother-in-law called and asked if there would be cake...
My husband and I had to work on my birthday, and I didn't want the hassle of having to hurry home at the end of the day to greet guests... So, we decided to invite those who wanted cake, to our store/coffee shop while we were working instead!
The cake was snow white, covered in a white chocolate ganache and filled with licorice mousse and raspberries!
The big surprise was that I actually got a birthday present! From my sister and her husband - roundtrip airfare from Gothenburg, Sweden, to Seattle, WA!!!
