It’s that time of year again. A few days ago it was my boyfriend’s birthday. For special occasions, we don’t buy gifts for one another but we always make sure there are homemade cards. On birthdays, there is also always cake. Even though I make the cake for him, I also like to take the opportunity to try something complicated and new. Something I wouldn’t normally spend the time on. The catch is, he does not particularly like cake. So every year, I make a cake-but-not-quite-cake creation. Basically, it has to be something sweet that we can stick a candle in.
