foodie friday #26

Earlier this month I had a birthday.  
Toonman was between appearances at/in hospital 
and 
sent The Lad off to get him a cake mix, eggs and frosting.  
Then they baked me a cake.  
It was delicious.  
And that plate?  
Its one of plates my mom collected and kept in the breakfront.  
I use it every day, 
I am not sure she'd approve 
because its delicate 
but 
I dont understand having something pretty 
just for display, it needs to have functionality.
I think I made that word up.  
I made up a new web word, internet slang, abbreviation ... whatever
MMS 
Made Me Smile 
Its for those not really 
LOL 
or 
ROTFLAMO 
moments
Try it, I think you'll find it very useful.

  3. Oh, Daryl....food porn. I remember your cake from last year....oh... Tomorrow is my son's birthday, and for dessert we are having a banana nut cake...last year we had chocolate, but why didn't I do it again...?

    The plate is gorgeous and I am sure enhances the cake's taste, if such a thing is possible. I'm going to serve my banana cake on one of those pedestal plates.

  4. Looks delish. Great job Toonman!

    I'm with you on the good plates thing - I use mine often. I chose them because I loved them (very modern pattern and bright colors). Why leave them to sit in a cabinet most of the time?

  7. Ray made you that cake???? WOW!

    I can understand why you want to use that plate it's so pretty and I agree pretty things should be used.

  8. How sweet of Toonman.

    The plate is beautiful. And i think pretty things should be used. I once had some neighbors over for dinner and they couldn't believe that I used my china for their children. I believe if you can't use it, you shouldn't have it!

  14. That MMS as well! Things are to be used. If they break, they break. We humans don't have a infinite life, why should anything else? And your birthday cake looks simply delicious - and beautiful on that plate!

  18. Gorgeous photo of what must have surely been delicious cake. I am glad you're using the special plate. I'm doing the same thing with some of the things that were my Mama's because they bring her back to me every time, if even for just a few moments.
