It was my BIRTHDAY on Sunday! Hooray! I turned... gasp... 33. THIRTY THREE! thirty three. See, I have to write it a bunch of times to get used to it. Actually, about 6 months before every birthday I start thinking I'm the next age already (in order to mentally prepare) so I guess I'm used to it already. Er... actually not quite. Above is the picture of the AMAZING ICE CREAM CAKE (mocha ice cream, almond ice cream and chocolate crunch) my husband Rich made for me! He even piped that cute border and used my fondant to make my name and a funny all-blue ice cream cone. I had a super fun birthday party and was surprised with a DESSERT PARADE of sweets made by all of my friends. I was very teary eyed. That's me in a blur of SHEER BIRTHDAY TREAT EXCITEMENT!
But the real reason I'm posting today, is that I want to give props to one of my fave local websites,
VANCOUVER IS AWESOME!
Vancouver Is Awesome is a nonprofit organization and website that supports everything that makes Vancouver a simply wonderful place to be--art, music, crazy cats, food, and more...! They were one of the first media types to support me and write a cute little story about me and my cupcakes... and now they are having their annual Donor Drive! Read this nice article HERE and consider donating to a website that is MORE POSICORE THAN ME EVEN!!! Their Donor Drive is on for ten days, so Vancouverites, it's a great time to support what they're doing! To donate some dough to this very excellent website, go HERE!
Yay! I had seriously a number one tops birthday this year. I also made a hilarious dish for my own party which you can read about. A terrine!!
