My first baby celebrated 11 years of life on this earth in October. We started the day by bringing him breakfast in bed, which meant that the rest of his siblings now want such treatment from now on. Oops. His sister made him approximately 7 birthday cards; she loves coloring! He also got to attend his first Boy scout patrol meeting that evening so he was quite happy.
He asked for chocolate cake with chocolate frosting - I made Germans chocolate cake but used a Chocolate ganache filling and a Chocolate buttercream frosting. It was extremely sweet and chocolatey.
