Today is my dad's 88th birthday. He wanted a white cake with pink icing...don't laugh! This is what his mother always made him when he was a child. It's amazing to me how strong and long lasting the mother bond is in this life. Parents really do have a huge impact on our whole lives.
I had a friend who used to be a baker, make the double layer cake. It looks beautiful..pink with white lettering...I think I'll get a balloon with 88 on it if I can. Imagine turning 88 on the 8th day of the 8th month! Once-in-a-lifetime, eh?! Missed 1918 by 1 year!
We're going to my parents' for dinner tonight and I'll take some pics. Hope you're having a good day, Dad!
