The one where we celebrated a birthday with lots of cake.....

We started with pancakes!! This is M, the birthday girl. Traditionally in our house, the birthday person chooses what they want for breakfast. The whole pile wasnt just for her though!

I made a batch of vanilla cupcakes for our picnic at the zoo.

This is K, she is 7 & seems to be enjoying her cupcake!

& Miss L-R, the baby of the family. She seems to be inhaling her cake!

For M's birthday cake, I made her a lemon sponge cake, with lemon curd filling & lemon buttercream. To be honest, it was a bit too lemony, so I wont be doing the lemon cure filling next time. The buttercream was delish, unfortunately though, due to the heat, it wouldnt whisk up properly, resulting in a rather messy cake.

All in all, it was (in M's words) "the best birthday ever!!"

How am I Mum to a 9year old. Feels like only 5 minutes ago when she was born!!
