It's My B-Day


Yep, it's my birthday today

And looks like it's going to be one of my busiest days. I already baked my b-day cake yesterday, but haven't taken a photo yet. Hopefully, sometime today -- before my last work at the izakaya starts -- I can find time to buy myself flowers and take a photo of the cake with them.
------

OK, I took a couple of shots of my cake. This is my favorite cherry pound cake (but again, the top and sides didn't turn out brown...)

Yes, I bought flowers :)

Now I'm back from my last work at the izakaya. It's been a long day, but finally I can relax and enjoy the cake and some drinks. I know... it's already past midnight, but today I give myself a permission to indulge in something unhealthy -- unhealthy eating habits.
It's my birthday :D

A belated 'Happy Birthday', Dear Obachan, and best wishes for many more to come.
Freesias were a favourite flower of my Mum's ... whenever I was in London during spring, I'd buy them for her ... now I get them for me.
God bless, Christine in Los Angeles

joanna said...

Happy Birthday to you Obachan!!!!!

obachan said...

Again, thank you jme, tiv, jen, thediningdica, sue, Helen, hinata, lilybakescakes, rabbit sim, foodcrazee, sera, kirk, Christine in LA and joanna. You guys made my life a lot warmer and happier on my birthday (and even the day after). :D
Yeah, the cherries in the 2nd photo do look like a kiss mark!
I wasn’t really planning to buy freesias, to tell you the truth, but I couldn’t find what I was looking for. Now looking at the top photo, I think the freesias was a good choice after all…

Tokyoastrogirl said...

Happy Birthday!!! I actually think your cake looks quite nice without the browning.

Anyway, I look forward to reading your blog and let us know what your plans are;0)

boo_licious said...

Happy Birthday Obachan! The cake looks great - I love how the cherry looks like a big red kiss in the cut out bit.

obachan said...

Thank you Tokyoastrogirl and boo_licious!
Yeah, I'm really happy about the cherry kiss. ;)

Tea said...

Happy belated Birthday Obachan! ^_^ Hope you have another great year ahead! Your cake looks great. Even without browning at the top/sides, I'm still drooling when I look at the pic. ^^

Amanda said...

Happy birthday, Obachan! I'm catching up on all my blog-reading, so I didn't read about your birthday until just now. Your cake looks absolutely delicious!
