We decided to get mother deer a cake from Thierry for her birthday. Typically I’m the one who chooses the cake but this year, it was brother deer’s responsibility because he worked downtown that day.

Lil’ bun was craving madeleine cookies again… Yes again. That girl loves these cookies, but who can blame her? I mean who wouldn’t want to have a spongey butter based cookie with every meal?
