Today was Fritz’s birthday (observed). Tomorrow, his actual birthday, he will be attending his ordeal for the Order of the Arrow, so we decided to have his party tonight. His requested birthday dinner was Italian subs and Cape Cod potato chips.
And he requested that we watch the movie Brave.
Not because he really wanted to see it, but because he wants to see the next movie in the queue: The Hobbit.
For dessert, he selected a raspberry chocolate cake.
He found out there was sour cream in it, and I had to convince him that all it did was make the cake moist. Oh, my, the cake was delicious. Doesn’t it look great? I was showing Katie how this one lens I have blurs everything except the one thing you want in focus. In the picture above, all those loose papers on our school shelves don’t look quite so messy. Here below, the cake looks downright decadent.
Fritz is showing me where to cut his piece:
George helped keep vigil on the baking process.
My girls did most of the work. I did the frosting, which was a ganache, so all I really did was pour it over the top and smooth it out.
Happy birthday to my 15 year old!
