A Day of Birth and Birthday Celebrations

A Day of Birth and Birthday Celebrations Recipe

First, I wanted to share with you the arrival of an addition to our large family. Lulu's cousin just gave birth yesterday to a beautiful baby girl. We're so happy for them. Congratulations!

Secondly, I would like to wish a happy birthday to Danielle from Bon Vivant. Danielle's turning the big 3-0 today and she set herself quite a difficult challenge for her birthday. She featured a dessert a day for the whole month of September. You read it right, that's 30 desserts. Though I question the wisdom of preparing and eating 30 decadent desserts right before a major birthday, chapeau bas (hats off) to her. She finished her challenge with macarons, though they didn't turn out the way she expected. Macarons are one of my favorite desserts. I'll be posting a fool-proof macaron recipe soon.

Danielle, I hope your birthday celebration is wonderful, that you're surrounded by the people you love, and of course, that you have a gorgeous cake! If you're looking for ideas for a 31st dessert, or just a great birthday cake recipe, check out my cranberry apple cinnamon sponge cake. JOYEUX ANNIVERSAIRE!

Jackie, thanks for this post - and yes, 30 decadent desserts was pretty full-on but thank goodness for friends and co-workers :) I'll have to try out that cake you mentioned, it's perfect for Fall!
