A Birthday, Studying and Lemon Meringue

Growing up in the BC interior, I always associated my birthday with spring. But in Edmonton today, it snowed, and I spent most of the day indoors with my nose in textbooks (although I'm researching for a paper on cacao cultivation and for another on the local food movement, so at least the topics are interesting!).
Charles and I are off to Zinc on Friday evening for a birthday celebration, but for now, he brought me this pretty Lemon Meringue cake from Duchess... along with other treats that I've been snacking on all day. You're allowed to eat as many cakes, pastries and cookies as you want on your birthday, right?
**I also meant to note that this is post #100! So this cake is serving multiple purposes.**

Happy birthday, and congrats on your 100th post. Here's to 100 more!

Happy Birthday pretty lady! Congratulations on 100 posts, and good luck with your papers! Those topics sound so fun, I'm jealous! Only 1 more month though and we are free to blog away our lives for 4 straight months, can't wait. I hope you had a wonderful day - and YES, you are allowed to eat as many treats as you want on your birthday!

Thanks, Mariel! I'm really looking forward to those four months too... the count down is definitely on! I knew it! Cheers!
