They definitly have their ups and downs as most marriages do but they are able to get over all those little bumps in the road like champs! My Uncle isn't the easiest person to get along with, but he loves her with all his heart and I know that he couldn't go a day without her. When I look at them together I admire their relationship very much and I pray that my future with the man that I love is similar to theirs....through thick and thin!
They came to spend Thanksgiving with us and so on her birthday the following day we went out to dinner and I made a ricotta cake for dessert that we ate at home.
- 300 grams of cake flour
- 300 grams of ricotta cheese
- 3 eggs
- 100 grams of butter
- 250 grams of sugar
- vanilla flavoring
- 2 teaspoons of baking powder
Mix the eggs with the sugar and butter add the ricotta cheese while mixing. Then slowly add the sifted flour, vanilla and lastly the baking powder.
Bake in preheated oven at 180° Celcius for 45 minutes.
This cake is very moist and soft thanks to the ricotta cheese and has a delicate flavor that can be decorated with simple whipping cream. Chocolate frosting would go great with this as well. Or if you like you can add just a simple dusting of powdered sugar.
I decorating with whipped cream and sprinkles as well as cake decoration flower toppers.
It ended up being a lovely intimate birthday party and I was honored to have had her at my home for her special day. She is a fantastic wife, mother and grandmother and a person I look up to greatly. I'm happy to have made her day a special one :-)
I wish everyone a Happy Monday and a great week ahead!!
