Birthday of the boy

My favourite boy had his birthday earlier this week. Continuing with our preference for making gifts, I took up a slightly challenging one this time. I painted him doing what he loves. Quite happy with how it turned out..


It’s pretty, isn’t it? But not as pretty as the cake/s he made!

My dear husband has a new interest- baking. Not only did he bake the customary cake to take to work for colleagues, but he insisted we wouldn’t buy the cake for the party in the evening. He would bake it himself. Here’s how that turned out..

Banana Walnut cake for colleagues (it was beyond super-yum)


And the one for the party! A Victoria Sponge Cake

Those are only the 2nd and 3rd cakes he ever made. How were they? Perfection! Our friends even took slices home after the party.

Can’t wait for more to come. Another reason to love birthdays!
