Take a good, hard look at the face in the photo above.
That face is 25 years old today.
Has 25 ever looked so impossibly wonderful, cute, and sweet?!
Happiest, most wonderful, heartfelt birthday wishes for my incredible younger sister, who has somehow scored in both the personality AND looks department. I couldn't be more glad that you were born!
Slather this frosting on top of any cake, celebratory or not. Its rich, dimensional flavor and velvety smooth texture will make anything taste good. I'm tempted to make a batch and use it as dip for apple and pear slices.
Of course, it is best when showing the people close to us that we love them.
