We baked him a chocolate cake and filled it with raspberry cream. I topped it with cream swirls and raspberries (out of the freezer, originally from our garden). The end product is not very masculine, but I didn't hear any complaints!
I used a piping kit that I inherited from my Aunt Maggie. It works brilliantly, except for the time I squirted cream up my sleeve....The children found this hilarious!
I made bunting a while ago and it made it's debut appearance yesterday.
For his gift, I ordered a print from Dee Beale. I bought it from her etsy shop. I got it framed locally, I had wanted to get it done in a white frame but sadly they didn't have the right one.
Colm's mother came over for dinner in the evening, and of course the cake died a quick death...only a bit left for coffee today....
So slightly belated, Happy Birthday Colm x x x
