Happy Birthday Joshua

I can't believe a year has flown by since I brought my beautiful baby boy, Joshua home from the hospital. He has been a joy and a sweet, easy baby. God saw fit that I needed a blessing from above and he did deliver!We spent the day with good friends and joy a plenty. It is amazing to know that you can still have a great spread with gluten free food - chicken, beef, taco toppings, refried beans, Mexican white rice, etc. And for the cake? I love the chocolate cake recipe from Carol Fenster - it's a winner! I've wanted to try others, but you know how it is. When you're getting ready for an "event" you just want to stick to the "tried and true".

I decided to do the cake the night before and I'm glad I did. For some reason, I just had trouble with frosting, decorating, etc. I've reached a point in my life though (2 kids later, older, and more tired) when I can say, "It is what it is" and leave it be. It actually looked better the next day when I was more rested and just glad it was done!

I want to thank all of you for reading this blog and returning to visit even though I haven't posted in awhile. I hope to get back in the blogging groove soon.

God Bless You in 2009!
Debbie

Happy Birthday to Joshua! He looks so cute! If he is the 10th then we share the same birthday.
Your cake is beautiful and I have copied the recipe and will try to make it soon.

Happy Birthday Deborah! I have so enjoyed this cake recipe knowing that it will come out great. It really is best room temperature and not refrigerated, although I ended up doing that in order to frost it the night before. I doubled + 1/2 of a recipe for a 13X9 pan.
