I have a birthday coming up, and Tracy, my pen pal, sent me a card with a sweet calendar inside, and a tea bag. Australian Afternoon tea.
I'm sorry, Tracy - I had it in the morning. It was good! I couldn't wait.
Today at work, Katie called me over to see something. It was on my desk. A winter cake!
She had signed up for my birthday. The tree is made from fresh rosemary; the "ornaments" are sugared cranberries. There are cranberries all around, too. The instructions can be found here.
A chocolate cake, vanilla buttercream. We even ate some of the cranberries! Okay, but raw cranberries are nothing to rave about, although I'm sure they were good for us.
Lovely, lovely surprises.
