This is the winter I have a lot of friends celebrating their 50th birthday. Of course most of them (all!) are partying. Honestly I am not sure why people have to celebrate themselves to be born. I have a really strange way of thinking about this – or at least for Europeans as they always celebrate themselves. I believe that others should be happy that I was born and walked into their lives and so they should celebrate the day I came to earth and share my life with them.
Well, fact is that my friends know I am free to arrange my life and so one of them asked me if I could stay with her for a few days to help preparing for the party. Of course I am happy to do so and was enthusiastic to go.
But like with every invitation quickly came the question: what do I eat when everyone has a wide range to choose at a buffet? I decided that there will be a lot for me as well, only the sweet tooth needs a little help. And so I had a journey through the world wide web for the perfect cake I can offer also to other people. And they would not make a face and ask “What the hell is that?”.
I found the perfect cake on PaleOMG. And the cake came out perfect!
So I left the very next day to stay with my friend and her family for 4 days. We had a lot of fun and a whole 12 hour day just in the kitchen to prepare. Various soups, 4 kinds of salads and meat, dips and of course fruit, cheese, cakes and more. It was like for a 100 people and very funny to buy so much.
The birthday celebration was a full success. In the morning with more than 20 small children from the Kindergarten she works, from lunch time until late with all her adult friends. I did the kitchen maid and so the next day we had just to change the leftovers from big bowls into smaller ones as it was all already clean.
Hey, someone needs some party help and offers board and lodge for free? Here I am 😀 Would be a funny job..
Here is the recipe of my mini cake version, enjoy it!
