Birthday Cake on the Front Porch

After I had baked the layers and let them cool, I knew I’d frost them before heading out to the Steelers game at Cj’s.  Set a table on the front porch to photograph the effort while I waited for Steve to come home to go to the game.  The occasion? Happy Birthday Roberta!

  2. Beautiful. Birthday cake and tea. Happy birthday Roberta. You must be someone special. Love the tea set Ruth.

  3. Love the hammock in the background! This photo could be the “centerfold” in Gourmet magazine! [Not sure that Mag. is still published!?] Let’s bring it back and you can be photo editor, Ruth!!!!

  4. And this isn’t the half of it–crepes made with a 70’s vintage crepe maker, parisian salad, champagne . . . It was a real fete. Ruth can make you feel glad you were born like nobody else can.
    Thank you to all for the good wishes, and to Ruth, thank you doesn’t quite say it.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
