HaPpY bIrThDaY jEfF 生日快乐,阿哲

Happy Birthday to you... Happy Birthday to you... Happy Birthday to dear Jeff.. Happy Birthday to you...... hipee hipee

Here are the cupcakes I have made and hope you will like them.

Here’s a Birthday greeting
Especially to show
How much you mean to me
Although you surely must know
That without a doubt
There’s no-one nicer than you
Or anyone dearer
To wish Happy Birthday to

My credits go to The Waitakere Redneck's Kitchen. Thank you so much for this wonderful cupcakes. I am sure Jeff would be very happy.
