This must be the sweetest thing anyone has done for the man! His bestie girlfriend baked him a cake for his birthday! Her husband, a dear friend to the man, decorated the cake too! The best part, the girlfriend instructed the servers in Mandarin (not that loudly, but not softly either) to bring out the cake for dessert. The man, who obviously didn't understand a single word, was completely clueless about the development of events. So when the servers brought out the cake, he was totally surprised!
Poor boy, he didn't get a cake this year, till this one. Well, not that I forgot, it's more of like, I didn't bother with it. (Plus it was Passover.) It was kinda the same way that I didn't bother with a cake for my birthday. The only cake and candle I blew out was when the girlfriend brought me to a yummy dinner at a quiet little restaurant at Chun Tin Road.
The cake is just the cutest one ever! The girlfriend alluded to his FarmVille addiction and love of cows while indulging him the favorite chocolate fudge cake. The man declared that he wanted all the animal-shaped candles to take home. They're now sitting in a row along the edge of the bathroom window ledge.
It was such a proper fudgy not-so-sweet chocolate cake. Woman, you've got the mix, texture and sweetness down pat. It rawks! We had half at dinner and brought the other half home, of which there isn't much left by tonight. The man's parents ate up huge slices. :p They love it. So do we! It's a race to the fridge!
