Happy Birthday, Greg...


Today is my brother-in-law's birthday. For Greg's birthday, I baked a cake. I made a traditional vanilla and buttercream cake and then coated it thickly with a sweet cream cheese frosting. To the frosting, I added just a little bit of maple syrup to give the frosting a little depth. Afterwards, I topped the frosted cake with a stewed berry medley of sour cherries, blueberries, strawberries, golden raisins, cranberries, and candied ginger. The remaining sauce was generously ladled on top.

Positively decadent looking (and I'm sure very healthy because of the fruit, right?)
