My birthday cake from Swiss Confectionery, inspired by schatze

I tried to order like my mentor schatze, a white cake with almond flavoring, pineapple filling with pastel pink roses. Please overlook the fact that on my journey back to McComb, a small shift obviously flattened one side into the box.



Now, imagine my surprise when I cut into it, waiting to sample that tasty pineapple filling, only to find this:



Strawberry! I did not want strawberry! I got the order ticket out of the trash, and it does indeed have pineapple filling circled. This after the onion ring massacre at Crabby Jack's - I'm beginning to think it's a conspiracy! Who put the mojo on me?

Well, at least the French movie we went to see at Canal Place was terrific. And the cake did taste good - so light and fluffy and the icing was not overwhelmingly sweet. Schatze, maybe next year I'll get you to ask Spousal to call it in for me - LOL!
