Belated birthday cake

Nothing more decadent than a lot of chocolate...and a few marzipan friends. Here is a sample of some cakes that my son and fiancee brought to me on Friday night, since neither could be with me on my actual birthday (Groundhog's Day!). The three of us each got our own marzipan buddy (I got the frog) and shared the rest. There's still some in my refrigerator, but for how long, I'm not sure....

These all come from Belgrade's Mamma's Biscuit House, so if you are in town, hop on down and waddle back. The site I've linked to in Serbian, but if you click on "Mamma's House" and then on one of the options, you'll get lots of photos, which need no translation...

I'm actually saving one of the pieces in my refrigerator for Lily of Long Island Daily Photo, who has a birthday today. Long live Aquarian bloggers!

BIG NOTE! It was originally DARYL who told me she shared a birthday with Lily, so click on Daryl's name and see a really cute post! Sorry, Daryl, that I for a short while forgot your birthday!! :(

Biscuits and marzipan and chocolate—oh my! Looks like you had a very happy birthday, and I'm so glad.
I'm quite fond of Aquarians, as it happens (daughter Katie celebrated her 29th yesterday).

Momma's Biscuit House?? Well that sounds down right southern! :) Yummy. I want to be there to toast your birthday and have some.

I take it biscuits and gravy is not the norm at Mamma's Biscuit House. . .:-) Thank you for sharing!

Last night I ate a Cupcake Royale "Death Cake" in your honor. My first treat since Christmas (I've been steadily decreasing in breadth since you saw me last). Glad you had a visit from your son and his sweetie. Viva la Aquarian!

Hey, my word verification is "bless" ! So, blessings!

If you are afraid of the calories, you can e-mail some of that chawklet to ol' «Louis». When it comes to chawket, he has no guilt....

How did you know chocolate is my favorite?
You are so sweet Bibi, you just made my day, thank you for sharing your birthday cake my fellow Aquarian blogger friend!

Great cake. Everything looks delicious!

Gaelyn said...

What delightful birthday treats. The marzapan looks almost too cute to eat. But there wouldn't have been any of that chocolate left by now in my fridge. Yummmm..

Mmmm! And speaking of waddling back, check my fun filled Saturday report on tomorrow's post. One of my partners in crime dubbed it the "Big Bottom" ride -:)

Thanks for sharing you birthday treats ... and I really appreciate the virtual and vicarious nature of this party offering! Would that I could be as good as Ms. Kim (sigh!).

Oh my, I could make short work of any of these. In fact I think I'll take a bite in celebration as it's Menton DP and Monte Carlo DP's 3rd birthday today. Come on over and have a glass of champers, dear Bibi. And a Happy Birthday today to Lily and to Daryl.

Jacob said...

These are merely "some" of the cakes you received from your son and his love?

You must have a big refrigerator!

The nice thing about chocolate, though, is that it's good for your heart.

Again, Happy Birthday, and I'm glad you had such a nice celebration!

Leif Hagen said...

Yum, yum, yum, yum! Delicious photo! I'm going to reach thru my computer screen and snatch a piece of the chocolate cake!

ha the frog and bee are precious.
So glad you had a good, chocolate-filled birthday!

I love Aquarians, too. They generally have very good energy and a quizzical, interesting outlook on life.
