Happy Birthday to my Honey!!!!

This past Monday was Curt's birthday so that means one thing in this house .......Schwarzwälder Kirsch Tort, translastion Black Forest Cake ....... 3 layers of uber yummy moist chocolate cake, 1 layer of chocolate mousse and one layer of cherry liquor cherries and fresh whip cream on the top. This is a family recipe that has been made for his birthday since he was 2. Needless to say there is always pressure to make this cake for him especially when Opa is over ........ he has been eating it for 80 years. In his thick German accent he tells me I have it right every time so that is a good thing..... Opa holds nothing back!!!

I made Curt a card starring his favorite pass time ....... sailing. I used Men of Life on this card and then Pharmacy font for the sentiment on the inside.

Here are the photos of the card, the cake and Emma assisting.




Recipe for the Card

Stamps "Men of Life
Paper PTI Kraft , Pure Poppy and random scraps
Ink SU Chocolate Chip and PTI Pure Poppy Fresh snow and Versa Mark for the chain background
PTI Buttons, twine and grosgrain ribbon
Nesties, SU scallop boarder punch and CB swirls folder ( that is my name not sure if that is the official name but hey sometimes I do not even know my name :)



Emma helping add the vanilla, folding in the egg whites and of course tasting











"Happy Birthday Dear Daddy ..........." Curt calls this the Superbowl of all cakes ......... I would have to agree!!!

Lovely card! I'm not a fan of cherries so the cake wouldn't be my thing, but it sure looks yummy!
