How FUN! Happy Birthday! I was also pleasantly surprised that your winning recipe was from Ana Pump's book! She is genius, and it's great that a cake that she sells in her shop in BH could end up at a birthday party in Paris!
Have a fun day-

Happy birthday! You must still be on a sugar high after all that yummy cake.

I am justifiably famous among my friends for my carrot cake, as well. Very sorry I couldn't be part of your cake-off.

Many happy returns of the day, Richard!

Happy belated B'day! 39, right?

OF COURSE your caked rocked the house ! We've always known your culinary past would assert it's excellence and trump chefs and crumpets alike. So ... many congrats on your triumph and a heartfelt Happy Birthday as well! Particular writerly kudos also for avoiding historical references that might have ended in " ..... let them eat cake. "
Love, Cheryl


Hi Richard, that was such a super idea :-) congratulations not just for your birthday but for the best carrot cake ever :-)

Happy Birthday to you .


Happy B-Day, Richard! ... and many more - carrot cakes - to come! :)


Oooo carrot cake! One of my favourite thing to bake and to eat. Happy birthday!!

Nancy Sotham

Happy birthday Richard! Many happy returns of the day. It looks like you had a wonderful celebration.


Ok, "Project Carrot Cake," - that made me laugh.

But why are there 3 carrot cakes?

PS - you rock the Marc Jacobs hat (that's good). I totally want one of those.
