August Festivities!

August is a very festive month for my family.  In a period of one week starting August 2nd we celebrated dad’s birthday, my parent’s wedding anniversary and my sister’s birthday.  A couple of weeks later comes my big day (gulp!).  Not looking forward to turning a year older this year!  I have a few more weeks to deal with that stress!

Given we are in the holy month of Ramadan, stuffed with Arabic desserts and starving for chocolate, I decided on cupcakes from Magnolia’s Bakery to celebrates dads birthday and an original take on birthdays – with doughnuts from Krispy Creme for sis!  We then continued my sisters birthday out with friends until 3am in the morning…she got her real cake then!  A decadent chocolate sponge cake with ganache.  Delicious!

Here are a few photos from both birthday celebrations!

Enjoy and try not to drool! hehe
