So I had a birthday this week. And I turned a number which currently makes me taste bile everytime I think of it. Maybe this time next year I will look back with more wisdom and acceptance of my advancing years and think

“Hey, I was young! I still had it going on…”

But presently I am only finding solace in cake.

And here’s one I made for the occasion. Basic chocolate cake with a blueberry jam and creme fraiche filling, topped with Betty Crockers ready made chocolate buttercream icing. Not forgetting the pink sparkly stuff on top.

    I just made an apple and blackberry sponge with crumble topping and lots of cinnamon. Made the house smell LUSH. I like baking, the rest of the family forgive your lack of housekeeping and you get to feel productive even on days like today when it’s too rainy to get going properly 🙂
