They really do love me.

Mum’s birthday cake Version 2.0 a couple of nights later. This time she remembered to spray the tin!

By the time our family gets to my birthday we are actually a bit caked out.

Ms Middle Child had her 14th birthday in late July. For one reason or another, this didn’t end up being a party year for her, but her mother did manage to make a cake on the day in question. We just didn’t have a charged up camera battery, so we had to make do with mobile phone cameras (and I still haven’t got round to collecting the ones Big Sister took on her phone.)

And then 2 weeks later (and a mere five days before my birthday) the Daddy turns another year older, and gets a bit of special treatment. (Even if this year he had to cook the BBQ for dinner!)

Thank goodness we have a breather for two months before Littlest has her turn for a day in the candlelight.

  1. Awww – they do love you.

    I don’t have a ring pan – looking at all your offerings I might seriously contemplate such.

    A ‘baba’ tin and the Women’s Weekly Quickmix cake book and you can impress anybody!

  4. Ours all come in a rush, too. I am in the middle though. But after organising child birthdays, adult birthdays get lost in the fray 😦
