If you follow me on Instagram you already know that Thursday before last was my birthday. And what a birthday it was! Filled with family, friends and far too much food and drink, just the way I like it.
On the day of my birthday The Designer and I had a quiet night in. He cooked me one of my faves, Spanish Chorizo Chicken, and we enjoyed a celebratory glass of Veuve Cliquot.
He put raspberries in my champagne because he knows I like fancy pants things.
And another thing. He purchased a birthday cake for me. Not just any birthday cake! The infamous Strawberry Watermelon Cake with Rose Scented Cream from Black Star Pastry. Oh my STARS this cake was delicious.
It was light and layered: almond dacquoise, fresh whipped cream, strawberries, Iranian pistachios, rose petals and watermelon. So indulgent and so exquisite.
Have you tried this cake? Is it not the most delicious thing ever, ever?
