A Birthday Cake

This time three years ago I was watching Dirty Dancing  (I know, I know!) and trying to ignore the fact that I appeared to be having Braxton Hicks every ten minutes. I then headed off to get some sleep as I thought it might be a long night...

Fast forward three years and my daughter has fairly strong opinions on what makes a good birthday cake. She has been definite in her requests for 'Raa Raa the Noisy Little Lion' for months, despite me trying to change her mind in favour of something that I'm good at, but to no avail.

The cake is a Victoria sponge, and I have to say there was a bit of collapsing, so judicious amounts of buttercream were applied and I think we got away with it. The acid test will be tomorrow morning when the birthday girl gets sight of it...
