the cake

Happy birthday cake for my big sister... (ahem)
I haven't posted here for a while...I had my eldest sister staying with me for about 2 weeks and we just enjoyed each other's company...both exhausted...a little too many Drambuies in the evenings...
The Cake had to be gluten free for my daughter and her husband...
so just made the one layer as thats all the cake I had

Looking pretty good right far
I can cook up a big storm re vegies etc but cakes are not my forte -
its basic but "there
Till as I watched the happy birthday writing and other decos started sliding
 towards the edges of the cake... see how sad I look.
But a little pink bubbly applied by our youngest
and soon the cake ceased to matter that much
it gor even worse when the candles were lit...some of the flower decos slid right off the cake...
I had to keep putting them back on
Its a wild bit of gear here...
Foxy moron I am sure your family wouldn't even feed this to the dogs
My sister was amazed at my artistry
and once the smoke cleared,
 the cake was cut and it tasted beautiful and thats the main thing!

I think it's a beautiful cake! Everyone, no matter what their age should have a cake on their birthday, you did a very good job.
Oh, and I want your kitchen!
Therese, thank you so much for your wise words on my blog, meant a lot to me.

I laughed. The cake is awful, about what I would make, but I am sure it tasted ok. What a great family gathering. Glad to hear you sorted the world over a Drambuie.

Thanks for the smile today.

Your post came along just at a time when I was thinking deep thoughts about what is important in our lives. Thanks for helping me to remember.

Foxymoron...thank you I think the same re kitchen is a lot smaller in real life than it looks...wouldn't fit a family really well
Andrew we did sort the world out...but it won't listen to us
Mom thats fine
Random Thinker - family is all that and as Shakespeare wrote "To thine own self be true"
