The cake

I took the Christmas decorations down today - for the first time ever I was really reluctant to do it, no idea why but I was.  Anyway they are all packed away in the loft for another year.
Last night's meal went very well, I am almost disappointed to say that granny said nothing  - I think she was more nervous than Aaran was lol. The meal was very nice and a good evening had by all. 
As for the birthday cake, was amazing even though I say it myself.  So light and fluffy, I couldn't believe it.  To look at, it was probably the worse cake I have ever done.  It was browner than I would of liked, my chocolate covered orange segment didn't look as pretty as they could have and the chocolate drizzling had a lot to be desired, but apart from all that, it was good.  It was orange and poppy seed.  It should have been vanilla but I had run out - hence the orange!! It was a combination of two recipes one from the net and the other from the flour bag lol

The birthday girl about to blow her candles out.
