I can't believe it!!! I iced a birthday cake for Claire....LOL! a funny looking one too! Well, I really sucks when it comes to icing a cake but the most important is the thought...right Claire ?

I just want to wish you a very Happy Birthday and many more to come...by then I will be good in icing a cake...so don't worry the next one will be better designed than this :)) I think I really need to go for cake decorating course soon !!! But rest assured the outside may not look appealing but the inside is moist and fluffy , the best butter cake ever ! LOL! So never judge a book by its cover applies in this case :p

Claire....this is made with love....thanks for the
warm friendship extended to me :))

haha...i found a flaw here....but who cares as long as I
know this cake taste good :p

I would like to dedicate this birthday poem to you , Claire

Birthday Blessings

Instead of counting candles,
Or tallying the years,
Contemplate your blessings now,
As your birthday nears.

Consider special people
Who love you, and who care,
And others who’ve enriched your life
Just by being there.

Think about the memories
Passing years can never mar,
Experiences great and small
That have made you who you are.

Another year is a happy gift,
So cut your cake, and say,
"Instead of counting birthdays,
I count blessings every day!"

By Joanna Fuchs

Have a wonderful day with your loved ones, Claire :))
