Birthday tradition

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.

It's chocolate...

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
