54 aint no more
Tonight the lovely woman who brought me into this world, my mom, celebrated the big 55.
The fam had a nice dinner at Symposium and headed home for gifts and cake!
The cake was my own creation and I did get a few laughs out of it. Those are actually raspberries on the cake, and although the idea was good in theory, the final product looked a little silly. Regardless, it was good. I cheated a little as this was not a from scratch cake but I added my own twists with some shredded milk chocolate and some boiled, to get the right consistency, raspberry preserves to spread on the middle layer of the cake. All in all, a good piece of cake!
