Chinese Birthday cake recipe


I have the best mother on the planet. I know everyone thinks their mother is the best, but take my word for it guys…mine is the greatest ever. She’s beautiful, glamorous, wildly intelligent, kind-hearted, and generous to a fault. She’s always there for me when I need her, I’m pretty sure her life goal — other than becoming an international expert on honeybee viruses (which she is) — is to make sure I’m happy and fulfilled, and she bullies me into being the best that I can be every day. She is my idol, and I love her. And I don’t think I do enough to show her that I appreciate her.

Her birthday was last Thursday, and as per usual I had something delicious delivered to her office to be shared with her co-workers. But, because I was feeling particularly grateful to my mom (she and my dad gifted us the down payment on our new condo…see what I mean about generosity?), I wanted to do something extra special for her. So, I invited her over for a home-cooked, traditional Chinese birthday meal. What better way to show someone you care about them than to feed them?

We started with deviled eggs. OK, so deviled eggs aren’t exactly a “traditional Chinese food.” But, I read somewhere online that eggs are eaten on special occasions in China, because their round, smooth shape symbolizes continuity and unity. Or maybe it has something to do with fertility? Either way, eggs are special, so I was making eggs for my mom. Plain ol’ hard-boiled eggs are gross though, so I jazzed them up a bit with mustard and mayo. Delicious!
