Yes it's that time of the year again..


My birthday!

D took this photo, it's a lavender and almond cake, the recipe is from Shaheen's great blog Allotment 2 Kitchen. I decorated the cake with pale pink icing (icing sugar, milk, vanilla essence and natural pink food colouring), silver star candles and silver cachous. The icing was poured over the top and drips down over the edges, I quite like the effect and it's also very easy to apply!
