Marble Birthday Cake

Marble Birthday Cake
“A birthday—and now a day that rose
With much of hope, with meaning rife—
A thoughtful day from dawn to close:
The middle day of human life.”
Jean Ingelow

I turned 27 today. I’ve never been that big on birthdays so I’ve just had a quiet day at home with my family today. I spent the afternoon looking through some old photos and keepsakes as well which was nice. It’s become a bit of a birthday tradition over the years.

My father bought this cake from Michel’s Patisserie earlier today as well as a birthday treat. It’s a mix of milk chocolate and white chocolate mud cake with just a hit of rum. It was delicious and almost too pretty to eat! Almost. 😉

  1. I’m so glad you had a great BD! That cake … I would love one of those –
    Just because – I quit smoking 6 (six) months now .. That’s my good reason!

    Happy Belated Birthday .. (27 is so very young) … You have a wonderful life
    ahead of you…. Best to you.

    1. Hi Deb! Thanks so much for the birthday wishes. The cake was lovely and I had a great day… just a pity it went by so quickly!

      It’s funny but this is actually the first year where I’ve started to feel my age a little more… it’s just in little things, like noticing how people have aged and are starting families, or how there’s a little less hair when I look in the mirror… I know I’m still young but time seems to go by so quickly these days.

      Thanks again for the kind thoughts. And congratulations on quitting smoking! Very happy for you. Many blessings.
