It’s Alexander’s Birthday!

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!”

Have It All – Jason Mzar
