SATURDAY WAS MY DEAR HUBS BIRTHDAY. THIS IS A SLICE OF HIS BIRTHDAY CAKE WITH CHERRY PIE FILLING ON THE SIDE. IT’S THE KIND OF CAKE WE BOTH LIKE. I BAKE ONE FOR HIM ON HIS BIRTHDAY AND HE BAKES ONE FOR ME ON MINE. YES, HE REALLY DOES BAKE ONE FOR ME ALL BY HIMSELF.
HAPPY RUBY TUESDAY EVERYONE!

Hau`oli La Hanau to you hubby a little late. That pie looks great. I could never bake like that. It's beautiful :) Happy RT

Ebie said...

Without reading your comment, I knew it was cherries, yum! Happy belated birthday!

Tricia said...

That's so sweet, Carletta! Happy Birthday, Ms Carletta's Husband, & many many more!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

My birthday is in August! Can I come to your house ;>)).

I love how you sometimes use the comment to explain the picture. Nice to admire the photography for itself first and then get the story as well.

Ralph said...

I think I see a dark chocolate cake with the cherries - berries and cocoa products go together so well! As do you and your hubby - many more happy, wonderful birthdays to you both!

judi said...

Ya'all are too good to each other.
Seriously, many more good times!

Mimi said...

I thought it was plums, which I can't eat (gives me hives) but it's CHERRIES, which I love!
I think baking a cake for someone you love is about the most romantic thing you can do.
Happy RT, Carletta.

"YES, HE REALLY DOES BAKE ONE FOR ME ALL BY HIMSELF." Wow, that's so wonderful. I have trained my family to make me soup for my birthday, because they know I prefer soup to cake.

The candle is wonderful. Luminous.

Carletta, that is soooooo nice of each of you! Wow! I would say the bottom candle is yours alone. You won't tell you age, Hubby probably had his full 37. :-)

Happy RT! Thanks for visiting and for your nice comment. Their place is so peaceful. The neighbor has some sheep and goats whose occasional sounds add to the tranquility.
