birthday baking

We had to throw Papa a little party before he left to spend his birthday in Yosemite with Nana.  At his request we had lasagna dinner and I tried a new recipe I found that had his name written all over it.  It was the June cake from a year of cakes put out by the Food Network mag this January.  Chocolate cake with a strawberry ice cream center, topped with fresh strawberries and whipped cream. Yes, June is a more appropriate month to find fresh strawberries and the ice cream in the center would be lovely on a bright summer day, but this is San Diego, so June weather is probably not to far off, maybe Thursday this week. Happy Birthday, Papa!
