My husband baked me the best birthday cake ever.
It was a Cocoa Madeira cake, but we didn't have Madeira so he used an Argentine Tannat, a red wine
The recipe called for milk, but he decided to use tannat for that, too.
This cake is gluten free, and so moist and so good it was all I could do not to finish it in one sitting. It's all I want to eat.
And it's all for me as chocolate gives Mike a headache.
I am very grateful for my husband and for his thoughtfulness in baking me such a wonderful cake.
Said birthday was Saturday.
Even though the documentation insists I am 56, I still feel:
I am grateful for that, too.
