Black Forest Cake - A Very Happy Birthday

"I’m wishing you another year
Of laughter, joy and fun,
Surprises, love and happiness,
And when your birthday’s done,
I hope you feel deep in your heart,
As your birthdays come and go,
How very much you mean to me,
More than you can know."

Birthdays are always special and if of someone close to our heart then we want to make them feel special on this special day. This post is dedicated to that someone special. If it would have been possible then I would have prepared a special kind of treat which would include Candle Light Dinner with a Birthday Cake.
