I was flicking back through some recent photos and I realised I never told you about the cake I made for my brother Eamons birthday recently (yes my whole family are all winter babies!) and so if its okay I will tell you about it now!
Firstly here is my brother... he always does this eejit face when we try to take his photo...And now here is the cake...!
I couldn't stop laughing the whole time I was making this... it just looked so much like him!
The cake itself was a Lemon and Almond cake, recipe below and it was really delicious... My brother said it was a different experience, slicing up his own face and passing it around so we could all eat it... but great fun altogether!!
