There are a lot of addictions worth the effort to try and kick: smoking, soda, biting your nails, Justin Bieber, swearing like a sailor. But my newest friend in the office, Carol, has one of the best addictions I can imagine having, which is indulging in cake.
“Meris, you don’t understand. If there’s cake in the fridge I’ll actually wake up throughout the night to eat it bit-by-bit. I can’t even sleep, just knowing it’s there.”
Oh Carol, I understand so well.
This addiction to a sweet is fitting, considering Carol is one of the friendliest, bubbliest, and warmest people I’ve ever met, and it’s not just because she loves the color pink. So when I heard it was her birthday, how could I resist making her an ultra-fem pink decorated flower cake? The inside being her favorite: chocolate with white-icing.
Happy birthday, woman. I wish you a day filled with sating craves and pool-side rum…and don’t forget to wear our favorite pair of sunglasses [hint: they’re the ones we got for free with our cheap, pink Malibu drinks last weekend. #ClassyLadies] 🙂
The side flowers were made using Wilton’s daisy-shape cutters
