1 four layer cake, 7 vintage belt buckles, and 40 years of life
my husband's 4oth went off without a hitch! he made it through the entire day in great spirits and in the evening we celebrated with his favorite - german chocolate cake. this cake was truly a labor of love, this being the first year i ever made it entirely from scratch. with four layers, the coconut pecan filling, and rich chocolate frosting, i spent all morning and afternoon on tuesday 'building' it (i felt like this guy). after cake we opened gifts; he has another vintage belt buckle to add to his collection - one of my favorites so far, with a native buffalo theme. here's to my husband!!
