I was on the phone with my mother last night, talking about work, and she reminded me about when she used to send a cake to us (I have two sisters) on our birthdays when we were away at college. I reminded her that while it was awesome tasting, it usually arrived in pieces. For my sister, whose birthday is in September, it really helped her to break the ice and make friends because she shared it with everyone on her dorm floor. It’s so much easier for parents to do so now thanks to Bake Me A Wish — we send it and it arrives as perfect as when it gets packed up. Parents have it so easy nowadays.
