It was my mum's 60th birthday last night.
I hosted it at my house for her, with family and all of her closest friends.
It was a long day of preparation, and the night itself was long, but I had a great night.
One thing I love about birthdays, is birthday cake.
I just love lighting a candle and singing that special song, it puts a big smile on my face.
I used to love it as a kid, especially when I was allowed to hold the BIG knife to cut it,
I dare not touch the bottom, or I would have to kiss the nearest boy!!
Not that any of that behaviour went on, but it's a fun memory.
As part of my mums birthday present I splurged on a birthday cake for her.
It wasn't cheap but MMMMMMMM was it worth it.
It was so much fun designing it with the cake decorator.
the colour pink,
mud cake, but it had to be a light texture,
and definitely,lots of chocolate.
We came up with, a white and milk choc marlble mud cake.
Marbled chocolate panels around the cake edges, they were white and strawberry pink.
The icing and piping was a delicious butter cream.
The flowers, yes, are fake but were so beautiful. I opted for those instead of fresh so she could keep them. I just need to find a nice bowl to organise them in as a display.
Here is the result.
It tasted absolutely AMAZING
I was so happy with it, as was mum.
I will admit to being naughty today and having another rather large piece with a coffee!!
Do you have a memory of a very special birthday cake?
