It's been all go here at the house these past few days. Now the painting is done and dried, our oven is wired in and working, plus we've filled the kitchen with a few bits and bobs. It's starting to look and feel more like home and less like a building site... Which is always a positive.
Before I move onto the house update, I thought I'd share the results of my Auntie Bee's Birthday Cake. Those who've been reading for a few months will know that I had the pleasure of making her cake this year, returning the favour (or flavour if you prefer a foodie pun) to her. After all, she's made our birthday cakes (me, My brothers, My parents & my Fiancee) for years.
So this is the result: A woodland picnic. It started out as a dirty dancing cake, but they didn't have any pink food colouring. Then it was going to be plain white with bunting across. Then it gradually developed into a picnic set on a tree stump. Don't ask how that process came to be, but it did.
