So, an update on my daughter’s birthday cake.
I had the best of intentions but I’ve been forced to admit that a baker I am most definitely not. Put it like this, I won’t be entering The Great British Bake Off for a few years yet.
In the end, I called on the talents of my mum who came to my rescue with a fabulous sponge cake, which I decorated with pink vanilla icing and sugarcraft butterflies.
Thankfully, it looked and tasted pretty good although there were a few comments from my guests who had read this blog and were expecting something a little different.
The moral of this story is don’t run before you can walk or in my case admit your failings and head to M&S next time for a ready-made birthday cake.
