Happy Birthday To Me

My Birthday Cake

Mom and Dad got me this spectacular birthday cake made by our friend Jeanne. It is (or was) dark chocolate with cherry filling and chocolate buttercream, with real gold-dusted chocolate-dipped cherries for garnish. It didn’t take long for us to polish it off. YUM!!

Cool Stuff, Food, Fun, Success!

More Tea, Please

As I was searching for pictures to use for my new blog décor, I found the following interesting tea-related things.

Hidden Animal Teacups!

(My parents have this mug, which used to belong to my grandparents.  It is one of my favorite things ever.  EVER.  The way Mr. Froggie peeks up out of your unsuspecting guest’s coffee is just perfect!)

Frog Cup

And behold, the Green Tea KitKat!

Have any of you had one of these?  I can’t imagine what it would taste like.   If the KitKat article on Wikipedia is correct, they also come in “Cantaloupe” in Japan.  And “Blueberry”.  And…er…”Apple Vinegar”.  Hmm, I’m thinking stocking stuffers for the person who has everything…

Look at this tea cupcake from Zalita’s Cupcake D’Lights!  Remarkable.  Hand-painted teapot and cup!  Tiny cupcake and jelly roll!  And don’t miss her tea table cake HERE – tiny sandwiches!  And tablecloths!
