Tomorrow I turn 27. Twenty-seven – EEK!! However it is also my my first birthday as a ‘Mrs’ which is exciting.
It is also my first birthday for a fair few years not spent in London, which does make me a bit sad not to be with all my lovely friends. It also means that Isabel (my old housemate and chief bridesmaid, as well as our wedding cake maker!) is not able to bake me a cake (booooooo!). Anyone who knows her knows that Isabel’s cake creations are amazing and I had one for my 24th (I think) when I was going through of my knitting phases. Other birthday creations have also been a Dutch Blitz cake (based on my love of my favourite card game which also got Becca and Emily involved) and also once I was involved in making a hedgehog cake for our friend Laura.
However I do also have Mr B on hand… I wonder if he will attempt to bake. I baked him a birthday cake (however that was before we started going out – ladies, a good wooing technique- joke!!) and we have baked together before.
Somehow this has degenerated from a reflective post on how I am getting old and has now evolved into a birthday baking post. Anyway, here’s some of the photos of the cakes/bakes I have enjoyed either by making or sampling over the years!
