happy birthday susanna!

January 10, 2010

a good friend of mine turns ** years old today (censored for her feelings and my safety).

susanna is one of those enviable women who is able to balance all aspects of life with very little effort. she is a super-hero. at the moment, she is super-wife, super-mom, super-friend and super-healthy.

how can this be?  all of these things AND healthy?? i have lately determined that much of her awesomeness comes from her ability to seamlessly plan…including planning to do the wild rose cleanse through her birthday. silly girl. for those unfamiliar with this cleanse, it had a fairly strict diet that comes from a long list of “acceptable” foods. birthday cake is NOT acceptable.

a few short and saucy comments on her facebook page has now lead to the ultimate challenge: make a wild-rose friendly birthday cake.

after some googling, i have a rough idea of what might make a cake using only “acceptable” ingredients. and so, i am off to the store!!

  1. well, it didn’t take me 10 days to bake…just 10 days to post.

    i thought i was being sneaky by using brown rice flour, but not so as one cannot have flour of any kind (even if it is derived from something you CAN have, i.e. brown rice).

    on the flavour front however, i believe that the combination of slow-roasted yams and a grouping of the usual aromatic suspects (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice) made for a tasty, harvesty cake.

    susanna’s hubby gave it a thumbs up even though it wasn’t entirely wild-rose safe (not that he really cared)so i will chalk it up as a success none-the-less 🙂
