June 12th

My friend Brian turned 40 this week. In turn, we had a bit of a fiesta in his honor this weekend at the Heirloom Homestead:

Brian's 40th

Brian's 40th

Brian's 40th

Brian's 40th

Brian's 40th

That cake was awful. I made his very favorite birthday cake, including a frosting that started with a roux. And he LOVED it.

    What is it with whose birthdays in the hottest months of the year always want Red Velvet Cake???????? My husband is a June baby and a friend’s husband is a July baby–both LOVE Red Velvet cake!!!!

    You are definitely a good friend and it looked like a lot of fun!

  2. That is M’s favorite birthday cake, too! Living in the south, it has cream cheese frosting, but I grew up with that yummy boiled milk icing you made. Mmmm

  3. Your new place looks so adorable, and so very YOU. I look forward to another visit toward the end of the summer and hope to see you, Mr. Nelson and your chickens!!
