My daughter was off to London this week for an MBA program and will, again this year, miss her birthday at home. Nevermind, I covered both events with one cake, making use of more neighborhood rhubarb and the occasion of the annual Block Watch Party to share a moist, unexpected, non-chocolate cake* on a hot night.
I emailed the neighbors an hour or so before the street event began to explain the decoration. I forgot to say that lemon cream goes well with cinnamon and rhubarb.
Happy Birthday on Sunday to my darling daughter. Maybe we’ll have proxy cake.
