Cake and cookies: always a winning combination

What have I gotten myself into? I think that I've inadvertently set the expectation that when there's a birthday at work, there will be cake. That's all fine and dandy until I stopped to think about how many people actually work at the company... and it's far too many to be baking something for all the birthdays. Hey, if I was rich I wouldn't mind paying for it all. Oh wait... I'm not. I think I'll cap it at one per month. "Happy November birthdays, everyone!" This one was for another co-worker celebrating another milestone birthday: the dreaded 40th. Sure, it's nearly black with all those crushed cookies on the side. But at least there aren't tombstones and such on it. Or a hill. A hill would've been tacky.

I think I might start bringing a camera along to take action shots and to give you a peek at what my cakes look like inside. This one was deceiving, because you'd think it was a chocolate cake like the other cookies 'n' creme cakes you see at the store, but I'm always one for fun surprises. White cake with Oreo chunks swimming around, all surrounded by a white chocolate pudding icing. Doesn't get any better than that!
