Every year Derek's birthday request is pretty simple.

Chocolate cake: check.

Lots of chocolate icing: check

Lots of sprinkles: check

Derek is a man of simple pleasures and when my cake decorating mojo has left the building I am thankful for it. I am most thankful that he only teases me a little bit over the lopsidedness of his cakes. Since he likes my chocolate icing so much I want to fill it as thickly as possible. Inevitably, the top layer always ends up slipping off the bottom. And the sprinkles? They. Are. Everywhere. Every. Where.

Ingrid, of course, had to get right in there and stick her fingers in all over the place. She loves her share of icing, too.

Happy Birthday, Derek!
