2 month LIDaversary!

Today is our 2 month LIDaversary and we decided to celebrate it with a bang...or a cake as the case may be. We wanted to celebrate the fact that we've been logged in since we didn't get to celebrate the first month. We decided to go with a "maple" theme and sort of went to town with it...

Josh and I went to Southbrook Farm on the weekend and saw these napkins and plates. Since they had maple leaves on them, I HAD to get them! Aren't they cute? By the way, if you're ever in the Richmond Hill area, the farm is absolutely wonderful. Not only do they have great veggies, but they make amazing wines as well!

Well the plates were settled upon, now we needed something to put ON them...

We went to a local kosher bakery in the 'hood and drooled on their counter while looking at their stock. We settled on this cake and then decided we had to decorate it a bit more...

While we were at the farm, we found chocolate leaves filled with maple and put some on the cake. Then we went to the grocery store and got the #2 candle.

The cake was beyond amazing...did we go overboard? :P

NO WAY - you didn't go overboard. Since this is such a LONG journey, whatever works for you to make it to the next month is great!! The only thing now is are you going to try and outdo yourself next month!!

The cake looks most yummy!

There is no such thing as overboard. I've said it before, I'll say it again. Stressed is desserts spelled backwards. Coincidence? I think not...
