Very, very excited about all of the sampler enthusiasm — thank you so much! I am thrilled. We will talk!

It's my birthday tomorrow, so I made myself a wee little birthday cake. And took a big huge picture of it. :-)

Beautiful cake.

Since you posted the recipe for this cake/icing, it has become my yearly birthday cake. My hubby makes it for me. It has yet to look as pretty as yours always do, bless him, but damn is it yummy!

Happy Birthday Alicia! Beautiful cake! :-)

Alicia: for the past year I've read your absolutely fabulous blog,and in so many ways your thoughts and mine coincide. It seemed to me that you and I must have something in common. And we do. MY birthday is January 7, too. Capricorns rule! So, happy co-birthday. I wish you a happy, wonderful year. Susan Johnson, Mesa AZ

What a sweet place your blog is! Not only am I totally inspired by you on so many fronts, but your friends have the sweetest and most kindest things to say. I just love all the beautiful affirmation and humble adoration that rightfully comes your way. It is a blessing in itself. Hope you feel all the love and good wishes coming your way especially on this day- your birthday. Happy, happy one!

Happy birthday, Alicia. Wishing you a beautiful year...

Wow! You know how to celebrate in style. Many happy returns. I suggest a trip to that beautiful park, finding a stream, and playing a rousing game of Pooh Sticks. I bet Clover Meadow will win :)

Happy Birthday!!!
