First off... thank you so much for 800! :D It was a wonderful little post-birthday treat. Thank you for your continued support, wouldn't have done it without you!
As I may have noted in a previous post, my birthday was last Thursday and the first day of spring. Spring my butt, it was freezing cold. Anyways, the day before that, my parents bought me a nice Dufflet cake (see http://www.dufflet.com/). Dufflet (aka Queen of Cakes) is one of the most renown bakeries in Toronto and came a ways before the whole "cupcake/donut/bacon" food craze.
I opted for a "cakelet", a mini cake, in the flavour "Lemon Raspberry"
The website describes it as....
"Layers of classic white sponge cake filled with tangy, lemon buttercream and tart raspberry purée."
I also forced my Mom to put 19 candles in it. Because who wants only 1 candle for their 19th birthday. Go big or go home, that's what I say. (not really...)
I'm not going to go into details, but it was delicious and the absolute perfect size for 4 people.
Other than the cake, I had a pretty odd birthday. I like to keep my b-day on the down low, so I didn't tell anybody at work. Then one of my co-workers came to my desk to chat and asked some random questions and somehow it came up that it was my birthday...oops. My parents picked me up from work at 6:30pm and I went home to eat I ate BBQ Jerk Ribs and Curry Chicken for dinner (apologies for the lack of photo). Around 8:45pm one of my co-workers picked me up for a round of ultimate frisbee at Varsity Stadium at University of Toronto. Afterwards, we went out for my first (legal) drink at the Duke of York (along with two huge plates of nachos and wings). Not to generalize, but I'm Asian and super tiny so I can barely finish a single glass. I got home at 1:30am and had to wake up at 6:30am the next morning for work, and surprisingly got there on time!
I went out for dinner Sunday at a restaurant called Cava (http://www.cavarestaurant.ca/) which is tapas (photos to come)! yay! A very enjoyable 4 days of birthday :D
One more year till I'm 20!
When's your birthday? How do you usually celebrate?
