August is the month for birthdays in our family, well four of them! So it's always auntie Sarah's little task ( and I love doing it) to make cake for the little ones, which at the moment is hard seeing as I cannot eat any of it!!
But I have made myself proud and last night I watched everyone else eating their slice of victoria sponge cake with butter cream frosting, strawberry jam and fresh strawberries, whilst I sat there with my cuppa tea and a slice of....nothing!!
9 weeks to go and hopefully I can eat as much cake as I like....
Making little fairy cakes like these for the little one's takes me back to my younger years.
Birthday parties with jelly and ice cream...
Does anyone know how to stop strawberries from making all your sponge wet.
I have given up putting sliced strawberries inside my cakes because they always drip down and make the sponge wet!!
