He has caught up...again.

Yesterday was my husband's birthday and being nine months younger than me, he has caught up with me for a little while.
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

Yummy cake! I love raspberries so much that there is no way ANY of them would make it to the freezer for winter :)

Karen- Thanks for stopping by..My Raspberry canes are so productive in summer and autumn, that I cannot even pick the fruit quikly enough...maybe I just have too many canes?! I think if I could only have one fruit, these would be it.

Nina- Thank you. The print is a good buy for a man who "needs for nothing". Good luck with the paper cutting, make sure and show us...
