Happy Birthday Jacqueline!

Though you may not know who I am, if you've been reading Jackie's blog, I'm sure that you've heard Jackie mention me from time to time.  This is "Lulu", Jackie's husband.  I'm sneaking a post onto PhamFatale.com without my wife's knowledge to let you know that today is her birthday.

I think it's pretty obvious that she takes wonderful care of (spoils rotten) all of her loved ones.  We are so lucky to have her in our lives.

My four sisters spent yesterday preparing homemade cards and gifts, and woke up early this morning to get started on a birthday cake for her (using the recipe Jackie taught them, of course).  Though you all can't be here to share in the festivities, I ask you to join me in wishing Jackie a very happy birthday.

Joyeux Anniversaire Jacqueline. Je t'aime mon coeur.

* In case you were wondering, the "cake" pictured above is called Rau Cau.  It's made of agar agar and has a slighter firmer texture than Jello.

What a cool cake! I don't really enjoy agar agar to eat, but I could look at this cake all day.

WOW, what a wonderful husband you are and how lucky that you have sisters to help with this sweet moment.

To Jacky:
I wish you have a wonderful birthday, and may you have many may more years to come ...

Your birthday cake sounds delicious, not just that. It is also special because it made by those people who care and love you very much. You are lucky girl!

Happy birthday!

Thanks for checking out my humble home at fraises et tartines! The La Duree macarons really are amazing...although I've never tried the Reglisse (I believe those are the black ones). Hmm...I'm still in Paris for a couple of days, maybe I'll check them out! Soon I'll probably post about Pierre Herme's macarons, which are also amazingly delicious. Happy Birthday to you and the cake looks beautiful and delicious!

Hi Jackie

The Jelly is beautiful

Would you be able to tell where you got the cake mold from?
