It was Appa's birthday yesterday, which starts this year's celebrations. Next comes mom and dad's anniversary, Sankranthi and then before we know, we are celebrating New Year's eve again :). Amma made nice breakfast and lunch and we went out to Dinner for some Thai food. It was Saritha's birthday too yesterday and we tagged her along for dinner:) and had two cakes in honor of their birthdays ;).
Talking about cakes, I made the cake for Appa from scratch including frosting and coloring and wording. As I was telling Dolls, hand me that medal now;).
That fugly picture you are seeing is of a coconut cake with butter cream frosting. Got the recipe from Ina Garten's cookbook. I have so much respect for her. She is the only one I know who worked as a budget analyst in White house under Gerald Ford and Jimmy carter. Looks like she was involved in writing nuclear energy budget and policy papers on nuclear centrifuge plants.
Coming back to birthday's and cakes, here is a picture of V with the Gparents.
