Birthday Cheesecake and a Birthday Pear

Bow is now eleven years old! His birthday was yesterday. If you would like to read about the celebration, you should check today's entry on Notes from the Pens. But if you're just interested in the food part of the celebration, then stay tuned.

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!


  1. Happy belated birthday, Bow! It looks as though you had a great day!

    1. Thanks, Dan! I have relayed your message to Bow. He is busy eating an apple from his gift basket at the moment, but he seems happy to receive the greeting.
