FABBY: A Birthday Cake and Capuccino

Hello sweet friends!

      Today is my young friend's 31 birthday. She is a lovely, sweet and kind girl, who cleans my house sometimes and comes when I have large dinner parties. I know her for at least eight years.

Carmen is like my own niece and we have a close relationship beyond been her boss, sometimes, lol..

Alejandro and me are her only daughter's Godparents and she was named after our own daughters, Sofia-Alexandra.

I always bake a cake for her birthday and today was no exception. I pinned this great looking "Kentucky Butter Cake" and it's now on my 'Bundt Cake board at Pinterest.'
( I give her a present too, lol)

Here is the link to go and get the recipe as the instructions are step by step.

With that said, here is the setting for Capuccino that she loves with my Bistro cups, specially for it.

I use these cute Bistro kind of cups for Capuccino, or just plain coffee.
My young friend loves coffee that's why the set up and the cake for her birthday.

The 'Kentucky Butter Cake' baked in another 'Nordic Ware' bundt pan.
At the beginning of this post you will find the link to the recipe.

The cute Bialetti coffee filter, with the ceramic pot is almost vintage from the sixties and was my mom's... and it's a very sentimental piece for me cause my dear uncle in NYC gave it my beloved dad who loved espresso... and they are both not with us anymore.

I love this silver tray cause it looks vintage, but it isn't.
It also has an etching in the center with flowers.

Thank you so much for your sweet and kind comments my friends, you always make my day.

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.

I specially thank and appreciate so much to the generous hostesses who feature me at their parties.
