Birthday Cake

Even though BF's birthday is not until next week, we are starting early with a small weekend celebration with his family only. This year, I opted for a smaller cake with cupcakes as additions for variety. I went to Cafe Blanc in Costa Mesa for this little cake. It's vanilla shortcake with fresh strawberry and whip cream filling and decorated with fresh fruits and whip cream. It's not very sweet and the whip cream is light as air. I am telling myself it's better for my diet with fruits and I am sticking to that story.Various berries are frosted with sugar giving them that icy frost appearance.
Instead of a message on the cake, a chocolate message board conveys the birthday message without taking the cake's original unique design away. I am not giving him his gifts until the day of his birthday, which I am taking him out to dinner with just the two of us.

    And answer (my Mulberry bag post): Oh, it's possible. As it is YSL bags. 650 grams if I know it well.

  14. That cake looks divine. It is almost too pretty to eat! Sigh, I wish I still lived in LA. At least I could stop by SCP while visiting my aunt.

    BTW - I think the gifts for the BF are very thoughtful AND functional. He's one lucky guy to have you in his life.
