I'd like to think that this cake really does have lots and lots of separate little layers, each one wrapped in its own pretty tissue paper just a little different than the one below it.
Sometimes you only want one little cookie. Sometimes you only want one little hard peppermint. I think this philosophy stretches across a lot of disciplines. Sometimes you only want one little cup of coffee, kiss from the dog, shot of tequila, chocolate on your pillow... I could go on and on.
Themed birthdays are something I never had the pleasure of as a child. I mean sure, I had matching paper plate, napkins and cardboard party hats all with Barbie on them, but disposable paper products do not a theme make. I was never a big Spider Man fan as a kid, but now that I'm thirty-something I wouldn't turn up my nose at these cookies.
