interesting posts

i would like to post interesting and up to date things, yet, at this moment there isn't much i can post about...

so instead i will show you pictures of a birthday cake i made for my sister in law, it had 30 candles on it! unfortunately i don't have any pictures of it with the candles lit, they were blown out so fast! it's a chocolate sponge with cherries, fresh cream (about two pints!) and dark chocolate shavings. baked the cake at home, and then assembled it in longford, while the SIL went for a hair appointment. even though we'd had a big feed of sausages, wings and sandwiches, at nine o'clock at night, the cake went down well, there were only three pieces left after about twenty minutes, which we brought into the kitchen for my brother in law's wife and kids to have the next day, but his mother in law ate them late at night and didn't leave a crumb for them! three large pieces of a 3-layer-cake!

i like cream cakes! proper real fresh dairy cream, not uht, not from a spray can, no sugar and vanilla in it...


  1. Looks yummy! I just made a cake for my little boys b-day. It looked like a football field and had crushed oreo cookies for dirt. His little 8 year old friends gobbled it up!!

  2. That looks delicious! It would go down really well with the cup of tea I'm drinking right now ;)

    Thank you so much for your very kind works and of telling me of your very personal experiences! Mmm I want to say more but don't want to let the cat out of the bag for you ;)
