Happy Birthday To Me
For dessert I opted to purchase a cake from a renowned local bakery called Konditerei's. The proprietor, Gerry Frank, is a fixture in our town. He comes from a family who owned a famous department store in our state and he was the right hand man for Mark Hatfield, one of the state's long time senators.
What Gerry Frank is probably best known for though, is his bakery and his cakes, particularly chocolate cakes. Every year at the state fair there is a chocolate cake contest judged by Mr. Frank. The annual winner receives not only a blue ribbon, but lots of publicity and accolades. I purchased the Gerry's Chocolate Cake to celebrate my birthday and it was the perfect ending to a wonderful day.
