It was my Dad’s birthday on December 17th and we celebrated by hitting up an old family favourite Portugese restaurant here in Vancouver. They do crisp potato chip-style fries fresh out of the deep fryer, which accompanies platters of roast chicken and sauteed squid with lemon.
I made a hairy dog cake for my beloved Dad because I wanted to make him something both special and hilarious. The cake itself was a green tea cake with matcha green tea syrup and vanilla creamcheese frosting! I also gave my dog cake a moustache… growing up throughout the 1980s and 1990s my dad ALWAYS had a thick black moustache. I still think he has one, even though it’s long been shaved away! That’s my Dad pictured above with our growing family… my sisters keep on pumpin’ those kids out! ^_^
Happy Birthday Dad… I love you more than words or a blog or even a hairy dog cake with a curly moustache could ever say!
