I love Summer! I will miss Summer but I also love Fall, possibly my favourite season of all even with the cooler nights and shorter days. As a kid, when my birthday rolled around at the end of August, it was a subtle indication that Summer was over, or at least, almost over. Going back to school didn't help with that either.
So this year I made a birthday cake for myself to share with my friends that tied in a little bit of Fall. I figure it was time to embrace Fall, after all, it's a beautiful season ... the cooler nights, the changing colours, the harvest, more time with loved ones at home, Halloween ... I only hope it will also bring more time for baking!
Happy Harvest, it's Autumn!
