Wish Upon a Star . . .

.
.
.
Someone had a birthday just the other day, sweet seventeen. She is a shining light in my life. La Grenouille made a rasberry topped dessert for the occasion, for someone who loves rasberries. Happy Birthday Honey !
.
And to you good people who drop in here from time to time, I'd just like to say "Thank You" for your comments on the post below this one. If I could blow out a candle and make a wish, or make a wish upon a star, it would be to wish that one day that dream will come true. Where there is a will... right ?

What an exquisite cake for your daughter's 17th. If I had ever had had a dad who spoke about me as you have of her in this post I would have felt secure and loved. :)

What a special occasion. Your wife must be a bakery chef in real life. The cake looks beautiful. Best wishes to your sweet seventeen year old girl.

Happy Birthday to her!

What a beautiful dessert! I was all about cherries when I turned 17 and I still have fond memories of the cherry pie that my mother made for me on that day. :)

One's child does shine a light into one's very soul that no other can do. Each light is unique and precious. I can sense the deep raspberry red love glowing in your heart for your precious girl. And what a loving tribute confected with the amazing culinary skills of La Grenouille.

Happy Birthday to Sweet Seventeen--may her wishes come true.

Stickup Artist said...

What an amazing cake! La Grenouille is something turning out a cake like that! You did a great job photographing it too. Looks like a shot from a fancy gourmet magazine! Happy Birthday Wishes to your sweet seventeen. May all her dreams and yours come true.

Wish Her that her dreams come true. As simple as that.
Take care

My sweet twins turned 19 last week. They are the heart behind my heart as well.

I noticed on your Chinese lantern post that one of the green flowers is shaped like a heart. May I use this for Guest Heart Thursday sometime?
