A non-typical Leo, the world does not have to revolve around him.  Sweet as candy, which is why I call him my Sweetie :)  

No birthday cake because there are just the two of us and who wants to eat birthday cake all week (I admit, cake is not my favorite thing).

I stopped at our local famous pastry shop, Servatii's - they make heavenly things in there - and picked up this:
It's called a Chocolate Dome Sensation.  
Since I had to taste test it before giving it to Sweetie, I can tell you that it's filled with a chocolate pudding-like filling and the bottom is a crunchy chocolate bar - the topping is chocolate ganache with a white swirl with decorative white chocolate pieces on top.   Lovely to look at on it's gold "plate" and delicious!!!  More like pie than cake inside - creamy and rich (so rich, I only ate half of mine during the taste test!!).

Sweetie has more willpower than I, so he has not even tasted his Choco-Dome Sen (Sin?) yet but I imagine he'll tear into it today after lunch.  I bought him another sweet called a Cloud 9 and it looks chocolately delicious, too (maybe he'll share with me?).

This weekend, everyone in the Southeastern Indiana Art Guild show drops off their painting(s) for the show beginning with an artist reception Saturday, August 9 from 
6 pm - 8 pm.  The show runs through August 16th and can be seen at the SIAG building at 305 2nd Street, Aurora, Indiana.  I put one painting in the show - The Littlest Bird Sings the Prettiest Song.

Hi Rhonda,
You're a "Sweetie", too, for getting such treats for Jerry!
I have but a single additional thing to say about this post:
YUM! :)))
Best of luck in the upcoming show, too.

Hope you both love the chocolate! Way too much of a good thing for me but it sure does look pretty!! I would have to admit that I can eat a whole cake in two days. By myself. Hope your "Sweetie," had a great birthday!!!

Thanks so much, Gary, Sherry and Sadami. I will pass on the birthday wishes - and, yes, that Choco-Dome Sensation was YUM!! We had lunch on the river yesterday afternoon after dropping off the painting - the best fish and chips I've ever had - so another YUM! I told my sister I'm trying to fatten Sweetie up so I can stop doing Pilates! ha ha
