Can you have too many cakes??

Can you have too many cakes??  Well, the answer to that is NO.

Julia spilled the beans this morning on her blog - Today is my birthday.   The truth is that I have been celebrating it since after work Friday.  Well, one day just isn't enough.

And apparently one cake isn't enough either.  The final count is (drum roll........) FIVE cakes.   One Friday afternoon from the staff,  # 2 made by a friend delivered Sunday, #3 store bought from Auntie,  #4 chocolate cake with boiled icing Monday night at my "official" family dinner, and #5 a second chocolate cake with boiled icing tonight at work from management/Council meeting.   (yes, I had to work the evening of my birthday)

PLUS a plate of carrot muffins with cream cheese icing from Terri,  a plate of my favorite crispy cookies and butterscotch squares from Alice,  and a donut from a cute boy.

Needless to say the diet has been on hold for a brief celebratory period.
