A Birthday Treat For S...



The funny thing about S, is that each time I bake something, he declares it his new favourite treat. It doesn't matter whether it's an elaborate cake or a simple cookie, it always seems to outshine the last in his eyes. For his birthday last month, I had all intentions of baking him this spectacular looking birthday cake he had chosen months ago. Unfortunate for S, his birthday falls in exam block every year. Even more unfortunate this year, his birthday fell on an exam day... at 8am! So a combination of the fact we were both in exams, we left for our holiday the day after exams finished, I had 3 Tuesdays with Dorie recipes to bake and also a Daring Bakers one... well, needless to say his birthday cake kept getting pushed to the bottom of the list of things to do.



Now, I can hear little gasps of horror. Of course I didn't let the poor thing go without! I managed to make him miniature versions of his all time favourite dessert (note above paragraph). When I hear S exclaim he has a new favourite treat, I always know that he means a second favourite treat. If faced with the (horrifying) decision of choosing one dessert to eat for the rest of his life, I'm sure S wouldn't hesitate.

Unfortunate for me, the process of making lemon meringue tart is extremely long, yet S always requests it in a 'surely you can just whip one up' tone. Happy Birthday S.
