I am not a narcissist. Really, no. But it is my birthday today and I have to let you all know. Because if you don't know, you can't wish me. And if you don't wish me, you'll all feel bad. And I'll feel bad that you felt bad.
Here's a cake to celebrate one more year on this planet. The rafting expedition made this birthday even more special. I had a whale of a time.
I didn't bake this cake for myself. Far from it. I baked it a month ago for my boss on his birthday. He is lactose intolerant, so I made this lactose free cake. And Cynthia just told me that she is lactose intolerant too. So, I do hope this makes her day. I'd not want to leave anyone out on this special day.
The recipe remains the same as my standard Golden Glow cake and I just substituted 1/2 cup of flour with 1/3 cup of cocoa powder. I substituted soy milk for milk and made the icing by whipping 100g of icing sugar with 4 tsp of ice cold water. Ready in a jiffy and as tasty in a way that only homemade cakes can be.
I can't tell you all how happy I am to be celebrating this special day with all of you.
