The birthday cake was a cheesecake sampler, each piece a little different. I highly recommend cheesecake as a good choice for those avoiding wheat based foods and those who don't want something quite as sweet as an ice cream birthday cake. Bow chose a chocolate and nut covered piece of cheesecake. He had a great time eating it, though it was a little hard to slice with a spoon, as it had not quite fully thawed out. But you can see in the video that he had no trouble biting into it.
Another special treat that Bow had on his birthday was a luscious pear from the gift basket his uncle sent him for the occasion.
All in all, it was a birthday to remember, full of special treats and rare delicacies to please the palate of the most discerning eleven year old!
