      Thank you so much, Nicole. So sweet of you 🙂


  2. PANG!!! I am drooling over this cake. What a fun idea to pickle cherries..
    A big, well-deserved happy birthday to you, my friend.
    I do feel the same way about my first post (http://www.foolproofliving.com/tuna-and-chickpea-salad-sandwich/), but hey who cares? It only shows how much we grew in such a short amount of time…
    All the best of luck and many MANY more years to come…
    Cheers!

      Thank you so much for your kind words, Aysegul 🙂 You are right we should be proud of how far we have come, but I just couldn’t help it; that is all. haha
      By the way, I would love to eat your tuna salad sandwich anytime 🙂

  5. You always inspire me, Pang, and this recipe is no different! Happy Blog Birthday my dear! You’ve come so far since your first post.. can you imagine what things will be like in two years!!?? It’s so fun to see the progression!

    This cake is just delectable. From the pickled cherries to the chocolate cake to that incredible caramel frosting! I love it all! And your presentation is stunning. Where ever did you find those cute little flags? Did you make them?

  12. Happy happy birthday to your dearest blog Pang. So glad you started it and we could discover the amazing person behind it! And what a gorgeous cake to celebrate! I saw USA cherries yesterday at our markets and was so tempted to buy them. After seeing picked cherries, I have to go back and grab them and make myself this beauty.
    Yes, I look at a few of my previous photos and wish I could redo them but I also look at some of them with wonder at how it was so easy to be creative back then. It was so easy to be just yourself and do stuff for your small following. With the growth of a blog comes a lot of pressure, expectations, responsibilities and even the tiniest of flaws will disturb you. Having said that, this is a beautiful journey especially because of the people like yourself who make blogging so worthwhile. Can’t wait to celebrate more birthdays with you:-)

    • Pang

      I feel the same, Sonali. One of the reasons I still blog is because of a friend like you, friends that come to this place with kindness and support. I hope you give this cake a try because I am SURE that you will make it 100 times better 🙂
      Thank you so much for being here, lady 🙂


  13. Happy 2nd blog birthday, Pang! What a gorgeous cake you have made to celebrate this milestone! As always, your photos and recipes are so tantalizing! I have bookmarked this for the next occasion when I need a stunning cake! 😀

    • Pang

      Yay!!!! Thank you so much, Julianna 🙂 So glad you are here even during the move .. xoxo


  14. A very happy 2nd birthday to Circa Happy!!!! I don’t think I tell you enough how much I love your blog… you’re inspiring and your photos are incredible! What a lovely delicious looking cake! I love the idea of pickling cherries… I can’t wait to try it. And the caramel frosting just sounds yum!:-)

    • Pang

      Awwww… Elsa, you make my day. The fact that you come here regularly warms my heart and it’s a drive I need to create something worth your visit. 🙂

      Thank you so much for your kind words, Elsa. I like your light & refreshing style as well. xoxo


  15. Congratulations!!!! Happy 2 years of beautiful blogging. That cake is just a stunner and the pictures are as beautiful as all of your pictures. You are very special, I’ve know you here for few months, but have grown fond of you and your blog.
    Oh Pang, I feel the same way. When I look back, I almost want to redo a lot of them, but I left them just to see where we have come to. Blogging does take so much energy and every picture is precious, almost feels like we have to make it better than the other.
    All the best for more and more birthdays.

    • Pang

      What a wonderful comment this is, Ash!!! I am fond of you, too, my lovely friend. I could have left blogging already if not because of friends like you. xoxo
