Today was Daiku's birthday. We started the day with pancakes for breakfast, then had a thoroughly enjoyable junk food dinner involving Boca Chick'n patty sandwiches and tater tots. But the best part of the day, food-wise, was the cake I made to celebrate the occasion, Boston Creme Pie from the Damn Tasty Vegan Baking Guide. This is the third recipe I've made from the book, and the third recipe that I've ended up loving. If you make it, I highly recommend the fresh organic strawberries on top. (Update, 12 July: This cake is even better the next day! The custard really sets and the flavors of the cake and ganache mellow and meld. Next time, I'd consider making it the day before, or even the morning of a celebration and letting it hang out in the fridge for a bit longer than I did.)
Happy birthday to a wonderful person and a wonderful partner! Daiku, I'm so happy to be able to share the funny and twisted adventure that is life with you.
And for you, wonderful blog reader, I leave you with Boston Creme porn galore... enjoy!
