Last year I didn’t make the July birthday cake for my office. One of the paralegals (who shall remain nameless) wanted to buy a cake from Gallos bakery.
I was not happy. The one secretary makes cakes for everyone in the office from scratch and someone was going to get her a “bought” cake. That really bothered me.
Happily that paralegal no longer works at my office, so I made the cake.
I did a dark chocolate cake with espresso buttercream and cupcakes that were almond flavored with Dari cream frosting.
I went with ruffles and peonies. So here it is.
