The month of June has always been a time of celebration around our house.
Tomorrow my mother will celebrate a real milestone of a birthday.
She will be 92!
Happy Birthday Mom. Love you!
Next week I celebrate my own birthday. Whew and it's one of those BIG ones.
Ah yes 39 again!!
The artist in me thinks what fun it would be to decorate cakes. I must admit I have tuned into a TV show called Ace of Cake. They are well known for their outlandish, spectacular cakes.
But the most memorable cakes in my life have always been those lovingly baked and decorated by my mother. Her chocolate cake with seven minute boiled white frosting. Ahh what a sweet birthday cake and she always gave me the mixer beaters to "finish off".
At the age of 91, artist Wayne Thiebaud is know for his paintings of cakes. In fact he launched an art career painting cakes. A fascinating You Tube interview with him is located here
If you receive a Thiebaud cake painting for your birthday lucky you.
If not just enjoy YOUR birthday cake and eat it too!
Have a memorable birthday cake story? I'd love to hear it.
