Casey is such a sweetheart!! He surprised me with a cake and a party last night! I didn’t expect a thing! I was calmly typing on the computer in our room when he opened the door and called to me. I went out into the hallway and it was dark, so I thought the power went out. Then I noticed two candles flickering and looked closer to see a beautiful cake! He even had the bakery write “Happy Birthday Wura” with my Yoruba name. So thoughtful!
Our two friends who work here were there as well to witness the surprise and sing to me. It was so cute! We took the cake downstairs to the laundry room so everyone could have some. I was also surprised at how tasty the cake was! Usually Nigerian desserts aren’t too sweet, but this cake was very good. It was a chocolate sponge cake with whipped cream and a thin layer of raspberry jam. It was topped with hazelnuts and pretty flowers too!
We all had a wonderful evening! Thank you, Casey!!
