Last week I celebrated my birthday with my friend, Irma, (we share the same birthday) at RnR in old town Scottsdale. I’m not usually one to spend time out that way but I’m in to trying new places every chance I get. We decided to invite tons of people that she knows and those that I know and see what happened when we intermingled them. By the way . . . RnR not only has great food but their wait staff were very attentive and cute. Irma caught on real quick as well as the few nudges to my left by my dear friend, Jenna. I swear eating food and drinking Sangria’s while watching the waiters here is way better than an eyeful of the Chip-n-Dales. . . . Not that I’ve ever seen them!
The cake that Irma ordered came fresh from the kitchen where they were hanging onto it until after dinner. Let me tell you . . . I don’t think I’ve ever had a birthday cake quite like this before. A camera made from frosting, a painters palette, little bumble bees sticking out and a ton of flowers decorated this masterpiece.
My eyes bugged out at the sight of this bad boy and I practically drooled. This velvet and chocolate tiered deliciousness came from Sugarlips Cakery in Mesa, AZ. They weren’t kidding when the cakery said “Kiss boring cakes good bye!” Thank you Sugarlips! The once separated table of 25 quickly gathered back together and, before I knew it, half of the cake was gone. Like. . . the top layer. Haha! I think everybody saved the best part for me. Velvet with what I think was cream cheese frosting. YUM!!
Here are a couple more pictures from that night:
