I Dream of Genies: Let’s Eat Cake!

We made it through lots of pictures and even got to eat delicious food, and then it was time for cake!


It was really hard to cut into this beautiful cake.


Note to fellow bees: Someone was brilliant and pulled apart the ribbon on the the bottom layer so we wouldn’t have to cut through it. It made cake cutting so much easier! The flavor was white cake with strawberries and cream, my favorite!


It is a Bengali tradition that family members feed the celebrants cake as well for good luck. This applies to birthdays also. To save time, we limited this to immediate family. But you know, we didn’t have forks until three people into it. Oops.


Daddy Genie and FIL Genie both said a few words for toasts.


And since we had previous experience with linking arms for a toast, Mr. Genie knew exactly how to help me with it. It was even more essential this time than the last, since I couldn’t really lift my arms up!


With all the traditions out of the way, I was ready to get on the dance floor!
