Happy Birthday Cora!

4 Dec

Yup, another fabulous birthday to celebrate!

Cora has become one of my best friends in the city. The funny part of our relationship is that after 4 years of attending the same college we met out one night in NYC.

Since then, we’ve gone on multiple “girl” dates, ate our way through many NYC restaurants and had our fair share of interesting nights out. Living in the city wouldn’t be the same without her and I’m so happy we were able to surprise her for her 24th birthday. Her boyfriend SteveΒ  and her roommate Kerri put together an amazing surprise dinner at Punch on 21st and Broadway with local and out-of-town friends and we had a blast. Then we headed down to Plunge at the top of the Gansevoort Hotel for more celebrations!

Cora’s cake was a gluten-free chocolate cake with butter-cream frosting and orchid flowers climbing up the side. I have to admit, I’ve always been a skeptic when it comes to gluten-free baking, but this cake turned out very fresh and delicious!

This is only the beginning of my experimentation with gluten-free desserts. I hope Cora’s ready to be my taste-tester!!

Enjoy!
