Piece ‘o Cake

My early February birthday always comes when there’s little wind left in the sails. A blur of holidays – Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year – have taken their toll, another season of dawn to dark days of hunting is at an end and once again the gear has been hoisted to the rafters with a long sigh. There’s frost on the lawn most mornings, and a little more frost at the temples, and spring still seems so far away.

So it was extra nice when Danielle came home the evening of my birthday with a special cake. I don’t know who was more excited about it, me or Danielle! Chocolate cream cattails, tule reed frosting, even the mallard was made of frosting. A birthday cake that didn’t last long, but that I’ll never forget.

My girlfriend Danielle challenged a local bakery to make her duck hunting boyfriend the perfect little cake. They definitely succeeded!

If you live near Sacramento, check out the Little Bliss Cakery in Granite Bay. Their creativity with cakes is amazing!
