So apparently when you’re a baker, everyone gets you desserts for your birthday. There was a serious sugar situation at my house, in the most delightful of ways. Cupcakes, brownies, frosting, macaroons….so many sweets! And, a very special heart-shaped birthday cake by my friend, Angela (and her baking assistant, Danielle). Since the cake was assembled at my house, I had the privilege of witnessing her process in action. The cake is chocolate with an espresso frosting (yum!) topped with shaved coconut and fresh raspberries. Happy birthday to me, indeed!
