~ happy birthday to me

I am 46 today... I thank you, one and all, for the birthday wishes following my birthday month announcement last week. 
Anyway, in honor of me, and my birthday, and the best part about having a birthday, I present you with charming tangerine-inspired cakes...











I like cakey.

(all images from Pinterest, again)




A few days ago, as I was scrolling through these images, preparing this post, my husband strolled by and grumbled, "Why don't you ever make that?" Being that he chose to use his caveman speak, I wasn't exactly sure what "that" referred to, but promptly relied, "Why don't you ever clean the garage? Why don't you ever make dinner? Why don't you ever want to go to a movie? Why don't you ever make that?" I believe he got the message.

Happy Birthday to our beautiful and talented "love child". you are truly a blessing and treasure to our family! These cakes make mw drool--we don't have any good bakeries in Winter Park. No offense Publix but they are not satisfying my alarming sweet tooth! I know you have good cake in Omaha so eat one for you and for me!! LOVE

Happy Birthday to you and hope you did enjoy lots of cake! Best thing about birthdays if you ask me. The cakes are beyond gorgeous and make me want to get in my kitchen and bake. Husbands...um hmm. You tell him, girl. ;)

Hope your day is great, and the year ahead is full of blessing!

Happy Birthday! Now, be honest -- did you pick the Veuve Clicquot champagne just because the label is your favorite color and it went with your decorations? No one's judging... ;-)

I just love your blog... AND..... Happy Birthday.....My birthday is in July also! Hope you had a great day!! And I'm just wondering, I mean, what would have happened if you had turned to your husband and said, "I'd love to make you one of these cakes!! Pick one my love!".....I'm sure his reply and you baking one for him would make a great blog post!!! Blessings to you, Cate

A very Happy Birthday to you. All of the cakes are so awesome - especially the one with slivers of lemons, limes and oranges. Thank goodness for our husbands because without them what would we talk about?? :-)
