guess who turned a year older


Convi turned 23 yesterday! Due to time constraints, though, I wasn't able to think up a more creative present for him, but good thing I had a solid back up. I got him this extremely awesome and scrumptious rainbow cake from The Cake Shack! (Thanks to Smarla for introducing them!)

When I picked up the cake from Genine, who was super nice the whole time I was dealing with her, I was surprised because I didn't expect it to be so big and heavy! Right then, I was bubbling with excitement, and couldn't wait to see and taste it myself.


I'm happy to report that Convi loved it! The colorful coconut cake was hidden underneath a layer of delicious white cream cheese and buttercream frosting, and it was pretty good, not to mention visually fun! Like Lisa Frank decided to put up a bake shop. The best part was seeing his reaction as the cake was being cut. Hee!

Anyway, he'd been sick since New Year, so instead of going out, we just stayed in, doing what we do best which is laze around. We watched Black Swan, too, which was an amazingly intense movie. Go see it, if you haven't yet! Natalie Portman did such a brilliant job in it.

Also, can I just say that I cannot get enough of the lighting in his family's condo?

By the way, you all seemed to enjoy his guest post last time, so I'll be sure to ask him to make another one sometime! Or maybe he'll actually push through with "plane ride under the sea". Haha, we'll see.

Send him some love over at the comments, you guys. :3

  11. Happy birthday, Convi!! I've been wanting to try baking a rainbow cake actually. Hahah! Me, bake? I love it. Very adorable and low key gift, Gela. Just perfect.

    I am scared that Black Swan is too dark for me though :P

  17. Belated Happy Birthday to your beau! :D

    My word, that cake looks heavenly. I remember seeing a rainbow cake recipe online just a short while ago, but it didn't have layers of cream in between the colors -- so mas "solid" na rainbow siya! Haha. Okay I seriously gotta try this cake though.

    You're so pretty Gela. And the lighting is indeed enviable. (:
