Happy birthday my darling Jan

Pineapple and coconut cake

I made this moist yet light pineapple and coconut cake for my partners birthday. I topped it off with the most delicious passion fruit curd, smooth and sweet with an intense tangy flavour. This is a seriously delectable cake.

Happy birthday my love. Today is your day. A celebration of your life, a life that has been through trials and tribulations. A celebration of a life filled with so much passion, love, strength and determination and in this life you experienced the worst thing that can happen to a parent. But you didn’t let it get the best of you. With strength and grit you carried on never letting love leave your heart. You are kind and thoughtful and sensitive, with your creative, brilliant mind there is never a dull moment. You are supportive of everything I do, you are patient and are always happy to listen and let me cajol you in my crazy ideas. I love you to the moon and back soon to be officially my absent minded professor. On your birthday I wish you you continued creative success a life filled with joy, and that your every single dream will come true.

For your birthday I made you a coconut and pineapple cake topped with passion fruit curd.

a delicious mixture of sweet and sour, reflecting a passionate life filled with sweetness and sour, I used nuts to represent the tough times you’ve been through but instead of keeping them in their original hard texture, i chose to use the one that has been grounded to a soft texture. Pineapple for its tough exterior for you have certainly had to be tough and it’s sweet fruity flavour to represent what’s in your heart.

Love you to the moon and back

Happy birthday darling
