A special birthday deserved a very special cake, so I made a trek to Suncook, NH and Jacques Pastries for this fabulous creation. Not only did it look good, but the lemon cake with vanilla buttercream frosting was delicious! If you have an occasion needing a special cake, it's worth the drive (check out their other designs - unbelievable!).
After a cold midday bike ride, it was time to celebrate with our close friends, and of course, lots of food. Instead of cooking, I called Lester's BBQ - one of NEBC's new sponsors. Lester's didn't disappoint, bringing delicious BBQ ribs, wings, brisket and chopped beef, potato salad, coleslaw, mashed potatoes with gravy, baked beans, pickles, cornbread, vegetarian wraps and a bbq chicken meal. Everyone loved the food (and I loved not having to cook or set up - thanks Andria), and we will be eating leftovers for the next two or three days!
We had a great day - a definite kickoff to the fabulous forties!
