Strawberry Shortcake

I found a recipe for a strawberry shortcake about 1986.  It became known as Nobu’s Birthday Cake.

In the beginning it was good, but a little lopsided.

Some years it became droopy while waiting for the guests to arrive.

I don’t know what Nobu liked more.  The cake or being surrounded by family.

Nobu's birthday:1990?

Soon everyone wanted it for their birthday.  It was still called Dad’s Birthday Cake.

This year Nobu turned 65.  I couldn’t find enough candles, so we used our imaginatons.


I have made this dessert dozens of times.

Every year, the cake is better and better.

So is the man.

Happy Birthday Nobu!
