It Was A Good Day!

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday was a very good day!  We celebrated my youngest's 17th birthday.  I can't believe he is 17!


Because it was such a beautiful day outside, we grilled my special hamburgers.  The hubs caught the grill on fire, there were no burgers harmed... thank goodness!


We are BIG fresh fruit fanatics and these were all so ripe and tasty.


Pavi had to be the official gift inspector.  He has added that to his other duties of quilt inspector.


Even though we had fresh fruit, on a birthday you have to have something decadent!  So I made him a Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cake. Notice one thing I forgot was candles.  We searched the house and all we could come up with was a 2!  It was symbolic...


Slice of cake... everything made from scratch... buttercream frosting, chocolate chip cookies, cake, and cookie dough filling.


Lots of butter in this baby.



Looks great and was a ton of work, but so worth it for my son!


Low calorie and low fat, only in my mind.... You can find the recipe by clicking here.

We had a great day, great company and ended with this...


My boy and me!  Love you!

Happy Birthday!

Until Next Time...

Oh my I am always inspired by your projects but this cake is over the top. I have bookmarked for a lovely Saturday afternoon project with my Grandaughter who loves to bake at Nana's. Happy birthday to your son!

I think the cake calories were offset by the fruit, so you are ok. Looks like a great day with your family!

That cake looks extra delicious; it's making me hungry for real buttercream frosting (with the cake, of course). I can almost taste it, it looks so good!
Happy Birthday to your son! He and I are almost birthday buddies, too!
