There’s No Party , But Still..


As if he read my mind, my soon- to- be- seven- year- old son said to me ‘Mom please don’t make the same kind of  cake  for my birthday this time too'. Well , what was I supposed to do after he said that! Obviously, I had to start looking for a new cake recipe .I am a bit concerned because there isn’t much  time left for a trial. In actual fact, for weeks it was on the preparation agenda , to bake the same simple chocolate cake that I have been making for the last few years, for all of my children’s birthdays . When I told my husband about the cake dilemma, He solved the problem in a jiffy.He suggested  to get a cake made by a  professional.Now why didn’t I think of that before?  After an exchange of discussions , we have now decided to go for the  specialist’s touch. I still haven’t told the rest of my children as we want to give our son ,the birthday boy, a surprise. He is a great fan of cartoons. Almost certainly we will get it designed accordingly. I am also planning to make some of his favourite hor d’oeuvres. I wish I could surprise him with a big party, but unfortunately I cannot at this juncture , as my oldest daughter’s grade 12 th board exams are going on and I would’nt  want to disrupt the studying atmosphere at home. I am sure our youngest wouldn’t mind when he sees his little surprise.

  1. Sure sure...Birthday cakes from a specialist is always great than our own baked ones! Especially mine, which my son so despises! And as for the baker's cakes in Saudia, be careful, all cream and less flour makes a cake gooey and awful...
