There's nothing quite like teamwork...
I was sitting at my desk in the Day Job on Friday morning, frantically busy as The Dawnburger and Cora Love were both off at very glamorous weddings while I held the fort. The buzzer went and I discovered a quartet of fabulous cakes in a box from the very kind people at Cakes Online including coffee and walnut, death by chocolate and black forest. I promised to bring it home to share with The Hubs, which I did and my goodness, it's all delicious.
After lunch, a spectacular Tiramisu, complete with four candles (yes, my mental age) was presented by my colleagues and instantly devoured. The cake came from Mardi Confectionery and was, as always, wonderful. I wandered back to my desk with my slice and when I returned to the kitchen with my empty plate, the rest had vanished. It did go to eleven good homes, I believe...
Cake The Third was handed over at Casa Little Sis. I had called to collect Sandie for the weekend (best present ever) and discovered that the three Childerbeasts had spent their after school hours baking me a Brownie Birthday Cake. From the photos, I think it was as much about licking the bowl and the beaters as baking their most favourite (and possibly eldest) Auntie a cake, but I think they had a lot of fun in the process.
I'm now high as a kite on sugar, having been thoroughly spoiled rotten by a group of people who went to a lot of effort for little old me. I really do appreciate your kindness and hard work so much.
Love you lots
