I was quite surprised to see that my Facebook Birthday reminders numbered 10 for this week. It was by far the highest number I’d seen in a while and I wondered what on earth had caused this minor baby boom. So I did some math. It was then I discovered that if you’re born around this time, you were a twinkle in your parent’s eyes right around Christmas. Apparently they seized upon the season to be jolly and you’re the living proof. And to prove my point, according to Facebook, there another 16 September birthdays still to celebrate. So I thought it might be fun to send you all a virtual birthday cake, something Andrew baked a little while ago that’s simply terrific. With any luck, someone will take it upon himself or herself to bake you the real thing first chance they get. This cake is truly worthy of any kind of celebration.
