In an anniversary mood...

So maybe I lied about our anniversary celebrations ending on Sunday. Yesterday, while hubby was shopping for eid groceries, I snuck into Cafe Mozart Bakery and bought this butter-cream cake roll. Cafe Mozart Bakery is a korean bakery, where they have the most decadent cakes, cookies, muffins, breads, sandwiches and bubble tea. What I like most about their baked goods is that they all have only a few ingredients and butter is always one of them. It's a shame that most bakeries and grocery stores here carry baked goods made with rapeseed oil, cottonseed oil, vegetable/palm oil or something unpronounceable. If you were raised outside the United States, you know we've always had our cakes with more butter and less sugar (absolutely nothing against American-style cakes and confectionery but I do feel they really go to town on sugar.) Long story-short: bought this cake and a beautiful card. Hubby and I have always been a fan of Papyrus greeting cards. Complete with the gold hummingbird seal, it lends an old-school feel to the whole greeting cards thing. Needless to say, hubby loved the cake roll and the card, but guess whose been hogging most of the cake?
