Happy Birthday Knuckles!

Knuckles turns 1 today. Hooray for my little yearling!

The cake, by the way, is the pathetic little cake I made for him and me. It was all right and at least it was definitely a cake (and it was CHOCOLATE!!!), but it was rather dense. In the future I think I'll add xanthan gum to that recipe, and maybe a little more leavening. Also the frosting needed a much finer grind of sugar than what I was able to produce with my second-best wheat grinder. Tip: if you are grinding sugar, for the love of God keep it away from any and all children. They thought grinding your own sugar was really supercool, and so they did it at every opportunity throughout the party. And they showed all their cousins and friends too.
