06 May 2010-marks my husbands 55th Birthday! Tradition has it, that the birthday boy brings cake to work. My husband is an officer in the German airforce and has 70 people in is department! That is a lot of cake! So, I made a Zitronenblechkuchen(Lemon Sheet Cake), 2 different batches of brownies and of course a decorated 11X15 chocolate cake! As I am writing this post, the cakes are being enjoyed by my husband and his department!
