Happy 62nd Birthday Farmer Bill

Thanks to daughter Maggie for the birthday greeting she made for Pop Pop. It made William and I both laugh!




Will turned 62 today and we spent it cleaning out the hay barn and stacking 50 bales of hay we got for the goats. I did bake him a cake. He doesn't have just one favorite but has favorites for different days so I took all his favorites to make his birthday cake. The cake has 2 double chocolate layers, 2 simple yellow cake layers. Chocolate frosting between each layer with buttercream frosting icing on the outside. The sides of the cake have crushed walnuts on the frosting and the top has roasted coconut on the frosting with farm animals sitting around. Yes, as grandson H told me, its on a Christmas plate. It was the first one I found that was big enough for the cake. It's a square cake that is 4 layers high though it doesn't look big in the photo.

Happy Birthday William. Peg, I sent you a short email about chickens. I thought I'd mention it here just in case you deleted it (by mistake) LOL.
