Katherine at 89!!!

Katherine at 89!!!

Katherine is a dear woman, whose daughter works in the mall where our store is located.  She comes to visit and always has an opinion to give!!!  She is a bit frail but sharp as a tack and I would never want to cross her, ever!!!   Altho, in truth she is pretty much a pussy cat!!

This year marks her 89th birthday and as always we have a little party for her at work.  Unfortunately she was on vacation visiting her sister when the day came, so we had to delay her celebration till her return.

As is typical, the best laid plans always encounter a snag.  On the day of her party, we had intentions of presenting her with cake and ice cream and a chorus of Happy Birthday around 6ish.  Well one person was busy so it got delayed, then another was busy and again more delay…this trend continued till closing.  But through each attempt, she sat and watched, noting the flurry of activity, then the downfall of it.  Finally after closing, we all gathered and she was brought to our cafe tables.  She sat there lookin’ as non plussed as she could but if a closer look were taken, she was watching us as if saying….

“You fools, if I were in charge of this I would have no idea what you are up to!”  The dear that she is, she gave us our surprise.

Happy Birthday Katherine!!!!

Variation of DB Opera Cake for Katherine

The cake is a variation of the DB Opera cake for May.  The filling is a raspberry buttercream, the mousse on top is blueberry and the cake is sponge, as nuts aren’t good for Katherine.
