The Birthday Cake

If you have followed me a while you know of my skill with birthday cakes and the following admiration of my friends


This was the first time, the second time it didn’t get any better.

Yes its the same cake <sigh>

This time round Monkey has grown up and wanted a different time of cake, thank God for that


This was what I was going to do, lucky for me, no shops had icing, so we couldn’t do it, instead we went for a normal chocolate cake. Not as much and while I am thrilled to have gotten out of doing the pokemon cake, I think we could all do with a laugh and since I don’t mind people laughing at my cake baking skills, it would have cheered up a few friends.

However the chocolate cake

I started off with the base bit

Followed by the icing, it was at this point, I was wishing I had an electric whisker

Ok, I will be the first to admit my decoration skills are shit. But the birthday boy really liked it

And this one is well worth it for the mocking I get, its a good thing I am stubborn.
