Birthday recap - Or how i ate my weight in cake

All I can say is "wow, thanks mom!". My birthday was amazing. Mom made a delicious sauerbraten (see Monday's recipe) and we finished the feasting with a tremendous black forest cake, soaked in cherry flavored brandy. Holy buzz, batman, what a wonderful cake. Don't even think about those bakery versions with the day-glo cherry filling. Uh, uh, this had huge bing cherries, whipped cream, deep dark chocolate layers.

It was a wonderful birthday and even getting older was ok in light of the festivities. Three cheers for my mama.
