Maybe I am taking the easy way out ( I still seem so busy and tired!) but here is my offering for ‘above’. It is the cake I made for son on his recent 41st birthday.
For those who might be interested it is a coffee and walnut cake with chocolate butter icing decorated with walnuts and giant buttons and just one candle! Maybe forty is a good time to start counting again. Forty-one candles might be a fire hazard!
(I liked the look of the cake so much that I took a few pictures not realising it would do for this week!)
(And my son said it tasted good, though it might have been better if he hadn’t sounded so surprised! He normally tells me to buy shop cakes to save effort.)
