Love natal day celebrations, and, of course, YOU baked the cake...right? There's a message for you on my "Meet Bozo" post from several days ago, with my response. You might be interested in it!

Bibi said...

Happy Belated Birthday to your dad.

Try cyber-cake. Tastes the same but no calories.

One certaintly has to do these things for science. Of course and if involves any parental figure then is a cause for sure.

Happy birthday to your Father.

I am off to spend time with my Mother. MB

Happy birthday to your father. He must be proud. And his chocolate fix looks like it must have been satisfied.

Sharon said...

Oh, that would be hard to resist! Happy Birthday from Arizona.

Other side effects include drooling and sudden urges for chocolate!

Happy b-day to your Dad. Hope it was a good one!!

I need to warn you: posting a picture such as this one is illegal in most states. Certainly in the state I'm in - an enlarged state! I think they call posting such a picture "entrapment" and it's not only illegal but it isn't very nice.

But it looks soooooo good. So, I won't bring charges and yes, you're forgiven!

;-)

Happy birthday to dad, too!

I love this lighthearted post following the last one... chocolate heals all wounds! I hope it was as delicious as it looks!

JM said...

LOL! But it's worth it! :-)
Happy birthday to your father.

I dared! (and won 200 kilos! Ü)(joking!)

Happy birthday to the happy father of a marvellous daughter!

A Frenchwoman from the Riviera made national headlines today. She gained 200 kilos solely by staring at a slice of chocolate birthday cake. Scientists are already on the case.

Happy birthday to your Dad!

I saw this at 5AM. What are you trying to do to me? Destroy my black coffee and grapefruit breakfast????

My friend Tomás makes a wonderful flourless chocolate yule log and I always wondered at how yummy it was. The state of your cake is proof of super tastiness. I'll take an inconsiquential virtual crumb or two :-). Hope your pop had a great day!

PS, after reading what Jacob wrote, I'm looking around for the Dateline NBC guy to confront us in the kitchen as we walk in. . . :-).

Tash said...

oooo-ahhhhhh! What a way to celebrate. Glad everyone enjoyed it so much. The silver is so elegant too.

anecdotal evidence also proves chocolate chocolate cake is very good and should be shared at your peril.

Marie-Noyale said...

Oh Good you left me a piece!!!
Happy Birthday to your father.

Au and Target said...

How cruel! I've just started a diet and you tempt me with yummy liciousness... aaargh!

Bob Crowe said...

Oh dear, you are reminding me of the truckload of calories I consumed i New Orleans last week. The picture also makes me think of Redd Fox's old joke about being on the seafood diet: "I see food, and I eat it."
