"Happy" and "100-candle" cakes

Lest any birthday cakes feel left out, here is the simple, but happy, cake we made for Chad on his actual birthday

and the 100-candle joint cake that I made for Chad and his friend Dave together the following weekend.

I couldn't help it once I realized that the sum of their ages this year was such a nice round number, even though the tall skinny candles in the center started to deform and create their own wind by the time we got it all lit.

I'm done with birthday cakes for a while, but still am in the process of making some bay nut pinwheel cookies to take for the welcome lunch for the teachers at Nimue's new school tomorrow.
