After coming home from the hospital Ian and I took it upon ourselves to introduce baby George to the sunshine and we had a very lovely walk around our block with him in his stroller. Such a happy baby to be born in the summer months!

Yesterday we got to celebrate Ian’s 24th birthday. It started out with a very messy “gift” from Georgie, making us about 45 minutes late to his first church service. Then we went to Mcmenimans for lunch with the family, and had a nice birthday dinner at home later that evening. Mcmenimans on the Columbia is officially the first restaurant George has been to.

Remember the Blackout Cake I made that Ian said was his FAVORITE? I decided he needed that cake for his birthday despite how much of a pain it was to make. The shortbread was difficult to gauge it’s doneness, the pudding (“frosting”) simply took forever and there was no warning of this in the recipe book. I knew I would need help with this one considering the amount of time and work it took to make it the first time. So I acquired the wonderful help of Ian’s mother and sister. Kristina made the pudding, Michal made the shortbread cookies, and I made the cake itself and assembled it all together. I did the easy parts. 😉
It turned out even better than last time! The flavor was much the same but the look of it was definitely more birthday worthy.

My first attempt at the Blackout Cake:

Attempt #2 with the help of my mother-in-law and sister-in-law:

Much better. The crumbs were perfectly fine and I was able to stick them onto the pudding with no problem.
