Thanks for the inspiration WC Williams...

Dear Champ,

 Happy Birthday to you! 

Are you enjoying your day?  Did you like your pancakes for breakfast?  Bear and I made them special for you.  You know how much we miss you when your gone, and today even more so what with it being your big day and all.  

I've been hard at work getting ready for when we can celebrate.  I even baked you a cake...

well no, not that one.  Remember that one was from Easter and it's not your favorite kind anyways.

No I baked you your favorite kind so please hurry home.  

When you get here I'll throw my arms around your neck and offer you your presents  
(act surprised- you already know they are those khakis from the thrift shop)

and smother you with kisses 
(which I know is annoying, but I simply must do on your birthday)

I'll gather up Bear and the dogs and we'll sing to you and go on a walk or bike ride
(with that awesome new bike seat you gave Bear for Easter)

and we'll eat birthday cake and listen to the geese pairs squabble over rights to the lake now that the ice has thawed and the peepers are beginning to sing.  

Even over all the din that Spring is though, I hope you''ll hear me when I whisper: Happy birthday to you, honey,  I love you and reach to hold your hand.

So hurry home, Ok?

(are some of you still hanging looking for a party favor?  go here here
here here and here and that vanilla lemon cake will be yours)

Beautiful post and gorgeous cake!! WOW! You'll have to post the cake you made for the b-day party because you are obviously SUPER talented in that department and I might want to snag some recipes from you. :)

Happy birthday celebrating!

Happy Birthday to your hubby! That cake looks amazing. BTW... I clicked here and here and here and here, but the cake still didn't materialize on my counter. You weren't implying that I should make it, were you?

Wow! Thanks for the compliments all- I did make the cake and it was super delicious (and quite photogenic). If you make it, the lemon curd only goes on the top and the layer and outer parts of the cake are the buttercream icing.
When you need a special occasion cake, you should try it gang- it really presents soooo beautifully and everyone will oooh and ahhh (like you all did!).
