Today is Satoshi's birthday. Since we moved to Japan, I've been baking him a sponge cake with whipped cream and strawberries (mainly because the cost to buy a whole cake is quite outrageous!)
The box cake mix that I buy is often iffy-- sometimes it comes out hard, sometimes just right. Today's cake was no different, very hard on the bottom and light and fluffy on top. After I use up this box (there are two packets when you buy it), I'll try making it from scratch (since I got a recipe off the flour package.)
Here's the birthday boy!
I leave you with some photos of our second trip to Aramaki Rose Garden. We went back this past Wednesday.
Hope you are enjoying the weekend!
