It's my Birthday today and there's no cake in sight...

It's my Birthday today and The Lovely Wife didn't get me a cake...
She didn't get me a cake simply because she felt that I make better cakes than any of the shop bought cakes and so buying a cake would just not be worth it. So instead, she got me a tub of Ben & Jerry's ice cream in lieu of a cake! How sweet of The Lovely Wife!



I got some lovely presents too that included a non-stick pastry mat and pasta tongs. We had a busy day today where most of it was spent with close friends over lunch after celebrating their childs baptism.



The lunch kind of meandered into tea and then we had to go to exchange something at the nearby shopping centre. It was almost 6pm when we returned home and that is when the The Lovely Wife and the kids presented me with my Ice Cream! I knew something was up because the kids and The Lovely Wife kept whispering and sniggering half the time that we were out!



I suggested that we wait till after dinner but they insisted that I have at least one spoon of the ice cream. I fed the kids and The Lovely Wife a spoon each too. We'll enjoy more of it after dinner tonight...

Happy, happy birthday Dharm. Ice cream is a good way to go since as TLW says your cakes can not be duplicated.

Hi Happy Belated Birthday..
Ben & Jerry's icecream.. where can u get it in kl?

Dharm said...

Ben & Jerry's available at most Cold Storage Supermarkets. There are no B&J Outlets though. I also think TMC in Bangsar and Mercato in Hartamas and Pavilion have it.

Happy birthday Dharm! The lovely wife is right...your cakes are great and one from a shop couldn't compare if they taste as great as they look. Nice ice cream is a good birthday present in itself.

Happy Birthday, Dharm! I think icecream is an excellent substitute for cake.
