Me: When is the next socially appropriate holiday so that I can make this dang cake!?
My friend: Tuesday.
Tuesday it is. I shall name it Bourbon Cake Day. And it will be glorious.
The more I thought about making this cake I really had to wonder what was holding me back from it. The answer I came to was this: nothing really (other than a small worry about diabetes because of the amount of sugar I've been eating lately...I need to be healthier). So, I decided that I was going to go ahead with Happy Bourbon Cake Day (which fell on Tuesday, June 2 - also my parent's anniversary) and ran around the house marking all of the calendars. I even started announcing it with authority (which mostly confused people, but some of them appreciated it).
All of my excitement for Happy Bourbon Cake Day was completely justified. I had a great day today, a great time making the cake, and a great time posting pictures and updates about a completely made up holiday. I'm really glad that I went ahead with Happy Bourbon Cake Day. I can't wait until next year - for the first Tuesday in June. I'd like to make it a bigger deal. Like with a cook out and a cake. And randomly taking mini-bourbon cakes to people that I know. This has become a new family holiday. And it's delicious.
Happy Bourbon Cake Day did make me wonder if my family/ friends are the only ones with a holiday that they've made up. I doubt it. Do you have any special holidays or traditions that aren't officially recognized?
