I Knew You Were Coming ...

 so I baked a cake!

A very happy birthday to my dear friend and fellow blogger, Patricia van Essche.  She was just encouraging me, as she always does, this time to pick up a brush.  You can see why this is not a good idea.  Is it a cake or a hat?  But I would do nearly anything she asked.  

Patricia - Hoping it is the very best of birthdays and that you continue to see joy first in the year to come.

Mrs. B -- By george you've got it! You've really got it! It's not a hat, it IS a cake -- a cute picture actually.

Mrs. Blandings said...

Martha - you're quite dear. It actually looks like the cakes I bake - slightly lopsided but made with love.

Now, cut me a piece, and give me a shamrock, please!
I can't wait to see the inside, I bet it's green!

Definitely a cake not a hat. So charming! Happy birthday Patricia VE!

Mrs. Blandings said...

Darling M, you are too kind and, yes - balance my check book, mop a floor and wait patiently top the list.

Mrs. Blandings said...

Thanks to everyone for your positive reinforcement. :)

Mrs. Blandings said...

Patricia - I do wish we were sharing a piece of cake today! Of course it's green inside.

And to add a poem:

"There once was a cake from Mrs. B,
Just a bit lop-sided as you can see,
Green and charming,
Not at all alarming,
But drawn with love for PVE ....."

Jan - Delightful! I'm a poor poet as well so this is a treat.
