For my birthday, how to decorate my birthday cake? It is plenty easy to choose images for friends and family, but for my own cake?
I asked my husband which photo should make my birthday cake, what would best sum up the year and the occasion… Without hesitation, he pulled up his favorite picture of me during a trip to France. We had stopped at an itsy-bitsy town in France called Mons.
In Mons we walked into the middle ages, with steep, tiny streets. When we entered the town restaurant, we literally stepped off a cliff—the restaurant balcony hung above the steep mountain-side. Needless to say, the views were spectacular.
We settled in with a citron-presse (lemonade) in hand, marveling at the sites in this remote area, when a virtual feast was presented. I can’t recall the menu, but when treats come like this, especially at higher altitudes, you imagine you have found a slice of heaven.
If you have a gourmand food photo, I thought the cake required some attention. I chose to make a banana cake with a coconut butter cream frosting with fresh strawberries and whipped cream filling.

I loved my YouCake! Happy Birthday to me!!!
