The Birthday Cake

I put my hand up at choir to bake a birthday cake for today. So yesterday I baked my favourite chocolate cake. When the timer went off, I pulled the tray out slightly to test it and it collapsed in the middle.

So today I decide to cook 2 mud cakes and join them together and decorate the cake. I put both cakes through the front of the house to cool as everything had to be ready by 1.45. I duck up the street to buy more icing sugar. When I get home, the big dog was eating one of the mud cakes on the carpet in the hall. Ken had forgotten to close the dog gate.


So … I have now bought a posh cake, fully iced and protected in a plastic case from Woollies.
