Birthday Cake Bake!

Today is my Birthday!!! I was going to go to the Country Living Spring Fair but decided to stay home and bake myself birthday cakes instead!

I share my date of birth with Sir Alan Sugar (entrepreneur), William Morris (Designer and Social Reformer) and Steve McQueen (Handsome Actor). If only I had the combined talents of all three I would be a very successful lady!

Baking is one of my favourite hobbies (as if you couldn't guess that by now!)

Would you like a pink one with white chocolate stars?

Maybe a blue one with pink sugar crystals? Or how about the hidden tray of misshapes that didn't make the grade for the photo shoot!!!

So far today has been the best of days. I have been pottering about and baking, opening cards and receiving surprises. One of the best surprises was receiving a birthday card from Diana and Walter with Walter on the card! and a beautiful ginger kitty card and button heart gift from Lyn. Thank you so much! How did you know it was my Birthday until now?!!!
I was lucky enough to receive some money for my birthday too. What I buy with this will be revealed on here at a later date. I am so excited I can hardly keep the secret. I' d best go before I give anything away!

Happy happy birthday, Simone. I'm glad the card was a lovely surprise (I think you mentioned the date in the comments on someone else's blog). A little vain of Walter to send a card of himself, but there you go! Can't wait to see what you're spending your birthday money on...don't leave us in suspense too long. And may I have a pink cupcake with stars on please?

Lyn said...

Hi Simone,

Many thanks for the Birthday cupcake. I've just had it with a cup of tea and it was delicious. I hope you had a nice day yesterday.

Oh Simone, I wish I had known, but I didn't so I am a day late in wishing you a very happy birthday - it sounds like you had a marvellous time though and those cakes look wonderful! I love baking too and thoroughly plan on joining you in Friday Baking once we're settled in our own home again and I have free reign in the kitchen!
