Here is Pepper making this divine Birthday cake for me, stirring in all the goodness:


There was a warm sauce of blueberries (that popped with heated glee when cut into). In the end, there were candles too. It was a cake masterpiece to me.

And may you keep on having them
For many a happy year.

Thank you, Pepper.
