Happy birthday!
I hope pie counts! It would be strawberries pie with cream. You can remove the girl from France but you cannot remove the cream!
In your store you carry a very nice collection of fabric, very tempting!

C A K E ?????
did someone say C A K E ??????

ahhh, the smell of sweet is what gets me everytime. I love a good cake with a thick, childsize spreading of icing! and it has to be pink icing!

vanilla, chocolate, as long as it has a delectable shell of icing, and maybe even some really pretty pink florettes on it....I'm in!

My teeth hurt just thinking of it! but I am so in!

ciao bella

Happy Birthday to BessieMary!! Jan, you are a blessing to the heirloom sewing world, and a bigger blessing to those of us who call you friend!
As for the cake, you know I've never met a slice I didn't like.
However, thanks to my mother's wonderful recipe, I learned at a young age to love Carrot cake!

Judy said...

Happy Birthday Bessie Mary. You have helped me out so much and are a great friend as well as sewing my sewing inspiration. I always like to hear from you. My fav. cake would be pound cake with strawberries...nothing like it! Thanks again for all your time and effort keeping us all in stitches.

Happy Birthday to you! And many, many more amazing years! My all time favorite cake is angel food with a tangy lemon frosting. It was my birthday cake every year from around the age of 2 until 18. Makes me smile (and hungry) just thinking about it.
Again, Congratulations Jan :)

Grandma Ellen said...

Happy Birthday, Jan, and congratulations on your years of success. I wish you all the best in the future. Favorite cake flavor? I think I would have to go with plain ordinary devils' food! It's good plain or all dressed up with fudge icing....the more chocolate the better :-)

Prissy said...

Happy Birthday! My favorite cake flavor is RED VELVET! Just thinking about it makes me want to go bake one right now (giggles). My waist line just won't let me.

Congrats! I love just plain white birthday cake with butter cream icing. I know sounds kind of funny coming from a grown woman but I have and I think will always love it!

Simple Southern Happiness said...

Happy 4th year to you and may you have many many more.

I love Red Velvet cake with cream cheese frosting.

Blessings to you and yours.

Kristen said...

Congratulations on your fourth year!

You can never get enough of pink or cheesecake with chocolate, raspberries, blueberries or whatever your favorite is. I love all the variations!

Although, a vanilla sheet cake with an inch of icing can also be my downfall!

marybee said...

Happy Birthday BessieMary! I love seeing your beautiful creations almost as much as reading your beautiful words. Thanks for your sweet spirit!

and as for cake... it's all about the icing, baby!! as long as there is lots of chocolate icing i'm happy!
