I love them. Not just my own, but all of my family's and friends' birthdays as well! The candles, cake, food, parties, deocorations, presents - I love it all.
My favorite part of a birthday celebration is that special moment when everyone gathers around singing Happy Birthday, the lights are dimmed as the glowing cake is brought out and the birthday girl or boy takes in a deep breath to blow out the candles and make a wish.
At precisely that moment I imagine the whole universe coming to a halt as it waits to hear what the next birthday wish will be; and I remember a quote from The Alchemist -
"When you want something the whole universe conspires to help you achieve it." - Paulo Coehlo
My little sister had a birthday recently which inspired me to make these yummy "Birthday Cake Truffles". Although she is in a different state I decided to make them anyway to celebrate her birthday and my un-birthday. : j They are super easy to make plus these little bites are just as filling as a huge slice of cake. A cute twist on the traditional birthday cake. Enjoy!
