July and August are busy months for me because that's when my two favourite people celebrate their birthdays. A few weeks ago we celebrated Rutty's birthday by hiking up the Chief and barbecuing in Langley. I'm just a little late to post about it.
At the top of the second peak of the Chief in Squamish.
The view from the top.
This is the cake I baked for Rutty. The original plan was to have a Scott Pilgrim themed party in August to coincide with the release of the movie but things changed partly because Jubbs and Teeners leave for Singapore in a few days, but that's a whole other heartache that I may elaborate on later. Anyway, Rutty was very specific about his Scott Pilgrim cake. I had the image printed on a sheet of icing from Picture Your Cake and I put it on a double chocolate cake a la Duncan Hines. I am not a baker.
With all my viking hat orders (I finished two hats and shipped them in the last two weeks!) I wanted to get as much of Nugget's birthday things done ahead of time to avoid panic and disappointment. Most of the planning is done. I will have more photos after her party.
