Festive birthday cake

For the final day of my visit, I baked a very special cake for my best friend Alyssa’s 40th birthday! I made her a Cake Remer, the pear and bittersweet chocolate cake that Mama and I first discovered in Venice, Italy.

Though the bake didn’t go as well as I’d hoped, I still got a handshake from Alyssa’s husband (we’re all fans of the British Bake Off). The cake was delicious topped with freshly whipped cream. Yum!

Today’s #OneGoodThing was a special birthday cake for Alyssa! What was your #OneGoodThing today? Please share in the comments! And remember, kindness is everything!

Day 318 of 365. And Now Totaling 2,145 Days In A Row. Here’s the first 366 and the following 365, as well as year three, year four, and year five of #OneGoodThing Daily!

On this day…
