Promised for 7 years

Finally delivered tonight. I rock!

My Girl loves fruit. Fruit flavors, fruit ice cream, fruit in general, fruit candy, fruit desserts. It's the flavor she always chooses. She's not a fan of chocolate, and she's not big on vanilla either. She liked fruity stuff. Me, I like fruit, but I'm kind of repulsed by fruit flavored things. I like fruit sorbets and sherberts, but I'm not big on fruit ice cream. The Boy is a chocoholic and would choose anything on the brown scale for desserts. This means that choosing a dessert for their birthday often involves a lot of plotting and planning on my part.

This is what I came up with this year.

This is a bombe made from many different flavors of sherbert. I started out with black raspberry, then layered lemon, watermelon, orange pineapple, peach, and raspberry. It took an entire day to make and it really wasn't frozen stiff enough to serve it in well defined slices. But it was for a bunch of teenagers, and they just liked the flavors and the idea of so many different flavors all in one slice.

The Girl has a few friends sleeping over, and it's incredibly loud, and well as hot. So guess what appliance conked out today? Yup, one of the air conditioners. The other one is working, and the one upstairs is barely taking out the humidity.

But no matter when you have good friend over and a huge mound of sherbet to eat. This friend made the Girl a cake this morning, but it was decimated by the time I got to see it. I heard it was good. The Girl was rather nasty and selfish and refused to let her brother have a piece, even though it was his birthday as well. He pitched a well-deserved fit and punched 3 holes in the wall. He got punished for the damages, which he'll be repairing on Sunday. She's in trouble too, and was told loudly and clearly right in front of her friends to knock it off or they were going home pronto. She can be such a bitch when she wants to.

This is the Girls friend who is very gassy. Every time she comes over we all have to duck and cover a lot. But she's SOOOO funny that we love her anyhow.

The Boy eating his slice of bombe and behaving admirably with 4 rather loud teenage girls in the house. Good for him!

I don't think I'm one of those.......

Hey Margalit! Happy Birthday Twins - glad everyone had a good time, and I hope Boy fixed the holes.

As teens my brother drove me mad and I stamped holes in the floor and smashed a chair by throwing it out a window.
As a wife, I punched holes in walls and broke almost every little thing in my kitchen...

But I'm all grown up now! :-)

That is the bomb, as they say! What an amazing cake. I bet it's nearly gone by now.

Michele sent me to check out your Bombe! (I saw it last night & was duly impressed then too) What a great birthday treat. I remember my grandmother making one for a family reunion once- it was excelent!
Treat yourself to something nice now that you've survived the party.

Happy birthday, twins!

That bombe looks great. What an excellent idea. I may have to swipe that for O's party next month.

That dessert looks divine and I could do with a piece myself even though it is cold here.
BTW you need to change your blogger profile to read ultra liberal mother of 15 year old twins. :D
