Happy Birthday Victoria!

Twenty-three years ago today our youngest daughter came into the world:>)
She is so very loved, this morning we took her to breakfast for a little bit of special time together.
This masterpiece is the cake she requested, which her father so graciously labored to make last night.
It's Julia Child's and Alice Medrich's fabulous Raspberry Ruffle Genoise Cake , he filled it with chocolate Italian meringue and surrounded it in her favorite substance, chocolate.
Holy cow is it good! That man is the bomb.
And this apple doesn't fall far from the tree:>) She's the bomb too.
Happy Birthday Darling!

  6. I went over to see how to make this cake and just reading the instructions wore me totally out...takes waaay too long to make but when a beautiful daughter wants it, we do it !! :)
