It’s Alexander’s Birthday!
That’s right, our namesake turned 19! I don’t know where the time has gone, but last week Alex celebrated his last birthday in his teens. An occasion such as this calls for a special dessert. I’ve been seeing a lot of giant chocolate chip cookie cakes on social media lately and decided to try one myself.
I think it came out pretty good!
The cookie dough balls that I used to decorate are a favorite in our house, a recipe from Six Vegan Sisters that we shared on a previous blog. I used our bakery chocolate chip cookie recipe, so the entire cake was free of the top 8 allergens, gluten free and vegan. Everyone in the family enjoyed it – and that right there is why we do what we do at Alexander’s Bakery. Our family has different food allergies and sensitivities, but we were all able to safely enjoy a giant cookie cake together. So all of us could focus on what’s really important – family, being together and celebrating a very special young man. Happy birthday Alexander!
“Oh, I want you to have it all
All you can imagine,
No matter what your path is,
If you believe it than anything could happen,
I toast you,
Here’s to the hearts that you’re gonna break,
Here’s to the lives that you’re gonna change,
Here’s to the infinite possible ways to love you,
I want you to have it all!”
