Green Cake for Your Half Birthday

Okay, it’s been a while since I last posted, but let me tell you… I’ve been a busy bee.

I haven’t really mentioned this before but aside from taking classes and writing my exit project, I also thought it would be a good idea to get a part time job.  Being the foodie that I am, I applied to work at a patisserie.

Sounds fancy, I know.  It is.  Sorta…

3 days a week, I’m surrounded by butter pastries.  It’s amazing.  Not only that but it’s fun all around, and I get to watch the chef make incredible goodies.

So basically, I’ve forgotten to take pictures of things but largely I haven’t had time to make anything aside from the most boring meals ever known to mankind (and in my world that basically means large salads with every vegetable and grain I can possibly add to it).

But today, at work, as the chef was making a chocolate cake with marzipan filling and green buttercream for a little boy’s birthday, I was reminded of something I made a few days ago.

A bright GREEN half birthday cake for my (Irish) former (but still near and dear) roommate, Christina (aka Boo).

The cake was a delicious Almond Raspberry Layer cake with green cream cheese frosting.

It tasted delicious.  It looked ridiculous.

But then again I think that’s a pretty good way to describe our friendship.  Amazing, but also pretty ridiculous.

Happy Half Birthday, boo.

    Sounds like a really neat job! One of my BFFs recently started working at a bakery and really loves it — plus she gets to bring home lots of yummy leftovers. 😉

    Mmm this reminds me of that green Swedish cake that is so bad for you but sooo good for the soul ;).
