Happy Birthday!

October is a month with many birthdays in our family! Today it's my DS's birthday. For that occasion I baked a cake, Sacher Torte to be exact.

(this photo cracks me up)

We all like it. I'm not good at baking beautiful cakes, but they taste good.
I cut it in half once and filled it with Apricot jam.

Everybody wants a piece of it!

(I asked Happy to smell the cake. He usually does not jump up on the counter like somebody else we know.)

Some want it more than others...

If you don't get it from the one side, try the other ...

That was close!

Wish I could share this with you!

This cake really NEEDS whipped cream.

Happy Birthday to your DS!!! Hope he has a wonderful day. Nice cake, it looks so nice, I would love to have a slice with whipped cream. Those pups crack me up too, All the shenanigans with the cake. I wonder if Denny leads Happy astray?? I love their little white faces popping up above the table and their eagerness for Cake!!

Denny's earnest little face, not quite believing that the cake won't jump off the plate and into his mouth....

I can't blame the dogs, I would've been up on the counter with them if I was there.
