Today is Amanda's birthday! We'll just forget about which one for now. *wink, wink* Amanda has been such an amazing friend, first to me, then to us. We are so blessed to have her in our lives. She is the very definition of friendship.
We decided to do something a bit unique for her birthday this year. She loves mojitos and last year I found this recipe for a mojito pound cake. We never got around to making it before we moved. Recently she mentioned showing the recipe to a friend who does some catering. The friend was intimidated by the recipe. Ralph and I are not easily intimidated and couldn't imagine a cake being too hard to make. I decided that was going to be her birthday present. She was going to be at mutual friends of ours for the week before her birthday. We decided we should send the cake there to prevent her from having to eat the whole thing herself. The way the dates fell Ralph ended up making the whole thing, including staying up until 3 am to finish the frosting.
Amanda's blog to see how it arrived! Don't forget to wish her a "Happy Birthday!" while you're there!
