Duncan’s second birthday has come and gone, and a spectacular time was had by all. Sabriena finally got around to doing some baking here, which was actually quite the traumatic event – as I’m led to believe any American forced to use the metric system for the first time in a trial-by-fire sort of task will experience. She really pulled out all the stops and did a fantastic job for Duncan’s cake, though I’m not entirely sure if it’s age appropriate for a 2 year old:
The kid absolutely adores chocolate, and his eyes pretty much lit up when he saw it. Basically it’s a chocolate cake, with chocolate frosting, chocolate chips on the side and chocolate Cadbury Creme Eggs on the top, with chocolate drizzled all over it. Yeah.
The cake itself turned out fantastic, which much to my surprise (and a little bit of relief) Duncan ate most of. It was so incredibly rich that I found myself in an eyes-bigger-than-stomach scenario pretty quickly.
