My amazing hubby, Matt, turns 35 years old today! He's a hard working father, a caring husband and a wonderful best friend. And he makes mean cocktails.
Some nights he will be working on making his own bitters and syrups, while I bake, and it's somehow become our "thing". We are having so much fun hanging out in the kitchen together.
So, for his birthday cake I wanted to surprise him by making a cake that resembles an Old Fashioned cocktail. A bourbon butter cake with an orange buttercream. I decorated this naked cake with fresh flowers, by inserting the stems (which I had first covered with florist tape) into straws, and then putting the straws in the cake. Hey, men deserve flowers too!
Happy Birthday, my love!
