Bake me a cake as fast as you can.

What an awesome week. My birthday was on Wednesday and I’ve spent the last 5 days celebrating with cocktails, pizza & friends & family.

On Wednesday I arrived home to the smell of baking. Strange as the h2b was supposed to be at work. He’d certainly got up for work. My first thought was that we’d had the strangest of intruders, a baker had broken in and used all our cake ingredients to make a cake! Fortunately (and as a wonderful surprise for me) the h2b had just had the day off work to bake me a cake & put together a party food spread for my parents & I.


Below is his amazing chocolate cake which he had baked using a Mary Berry recipe.

He had made it to look like my birthday present which is on order.


Can you guess what it is yet?

When we first got together, him being a lover of all Apple products, bought me an iPod nano in red for my birthday, but recently I lost mine & so being the lovely fiancé that he is he’s replaced it! Along with the iPod my friends seem to be following a theme…


I will definitely be baking next weekend, but with such a selection of cook books to choose from the choice might be tricky!!
