For as long as I can remember we have the birthday tradition of getting a Pepperidge Farm chocolate fudge layer cake for Beth's birthday.
And it's nut free.
Actually it's not for as long as I can remember, because in 2008 we didn't get the cake.
That was the year hurricane Ike made it all the way to Ohio.
We lost power, but only for a day. Some people lost it for a week.
Stores lost power for longer. And lost power meant lost frozen food.
I went to Wal Mart looking for a Pepperidge Farm cake, and the only thing they had in the frozen dessert section was Frozen Mini Chocolate Eclairs.
They didn't hold candles, but they were a neat birthday dessert. Not one worth starting a tradition mind you - although I think we got them a time or two after.s
