Yes, you can eat your books now too

Last month, I was invited to the surprise birthday party for a good friend, Iya. Of course, being prepared for the occasion, I came with an empty stomach. Aside from the sumptuous buffet laid out for us, look what they've come up with -- a birthday cake with edible books!


And it wasn't just the cake that was bookish. Iya's husband and friends also had these bite-sized chocolates with book covers on top as giveaways! I thought that these were just plain milk chocolates, but inside the chocolate coat were truffles!




Ah, dear reader, the chocolates were heavenly! Pure bliss in every bite! Each guest was allowed to get one piece, but I think I got 7! (I hope no one noticed during the party.)

Books and chocolate and cake. Heaven. *sigh*

I love that cake. Most of the book cakes I've seen posted make the whole cake into a single books. I think this one is much better. They look much more like books.

Look at you, gafflin' extra candy! It's amazing what they can do with this stuff now; the cake at my big six-oh had two photos of me as a toddler printed on top. Anyway, hope you had a ball!

I just wanted to swing by with a little shameless self-promotion: Visit the Hideout when you get a chance. I've reviewed a couple of books that might strike your fancy. Meanwhile, party on, dude!

Just checking. When I booted up my comp, a big red banner on MSN was screaming about another tsunami-quake off Sumatra.
