Paul very wisely brought a book with him when he came to visit on Saturday. After all, if you're going to be excluded from the kitchen in this house, you may as well have something to do.
So what was going on in the kitchen, you say?
Fire, that's what! Our two pyrotechnicians are trying to get all those candles lighted... not an easy task, given how much heat that many candles put off. The cake here is a two-layer German chocolate layered with cherry pie filling. I tried making this myself before, but it looked more like a volcano on a plate than a cake...
Happy birthday, Paul!
