My hubby is celebrating his golden year. It is, according to custom and tradition, a special year that requires a celebration. Of course, I aim to please!
He wanted a different cake initially – a date chiffon cake – but we were concerned that the guests might not appreciate it so we settled for the good ol’ mocha chiffon.
I usually decorate my cakes with gumpaste or sugar flowers but for my hubby, I envisioned gold – because at the moment, his favorite color is gold, and well, it is his golden year. 🙂
The cake is so titled because hubby is my greatest treasure.
So I wanted to do more… in addition to the cake, I also made fruitcake, which hubby loves. (Personally I am not a fan, but year after year I make fruitcake for hubby.)
And then, just because hubby likes brownies, I made 4 kinds – triple chip bars, choco malt brownies, choco hazelnut brownies, and his all-time favorite fudge brownies!
The fruitcake and brownie treats were displayed in a “tower” with the fruitcake on top.
The celebration was held privately at a small club/bar – the place was known for its good food and great sound system. The guest list numbered 50. Hubby and some friends prepared a short program with singing…
The party was wonderful success… a celebration with food, music, and special people! Everyone had a good time. Hubby’s happy!
Happy Golden Year Sweetie!
