I won’t give up the day job

Crickey what a day!  Whilst I love cooking, the pressure of creating nephew’s birthday cake to be judged by a rather pernickety sister and a cousin who is a professional cake maker (had I known she had been invited prior to my agreeing to make said cake I would have run a million miles) had me in near tears this morning as everything that could have gone wrong went wrong.  I bake week after week, always a pleasurable experience and always scrummy, but this was a saga and a half.  Well here it is in all its tragic glory, vanilla sponge, filled with chocolate cream and covered in chocolate butter icing with the very sad iced name on top … I’m going for a lie down in a dark room Cx


  1. Well I think it looks lovely. Probably tasted delicious as well. X

  2. Hi

    I think your cake looks lovely and if your sister is that pernickety, why didn't she make her son a cake herself??.. What a lucky boy your nephew is to have such a kind considerate aunt.
