Happy Birthday, Mom. 83 years young, beautiful skin, great sense of humor, fab cook, and known globally for her strong drinks- I kid you not! I love you so much and thank you for everything. All that is good in me, came from you. And you always looked so glamorous with just lipstick and some powder! I baked a cake a while ago and will make one for you, too, if you want. It's a yellow cake, apricot filling, and marzipan fondant- complete with Cheshire Cat and edible mice! Perhaps just one slice???
