Today’s post is a lovely picture of a birthday gift to me – our bookkeeping genius, cake maker and all round wonderful member of staff Jo Bridgeman made me this most stunning cake.
I love the concept that it’s a giant cupcake and the hours of work that went into making the chocolate shell as the case for the cupcake and the wonderful layers of chocolate cake inside just made my day! I have added the link to the recipe she used, below. Knowing how many hours of work it was, it may not be something most of us will want to try, but if you are interested – then help yourself!
The main thing I wanted to say is that all through this week that has included my birthday I have had wonderful ‘gifts’ of time, care and creativity. Home made cards are so special, home made cakes are always lovely and all of my favourite things have been from friends (and family) who have sat and thought about me and given me something that I really love – just a phone call or a message means so much when someone has thought about you and wished you well.
The link for details of how to make the cake is here.
Have a lovely weekend!
