And then, after an hour of mad tidying, Will and I cracked open a nice bottle of pinot to celebrate that other little milestone... 4 years of
Happy birthday kiddo. You have no idea how much we adore you.
*Note to self re cake: We made the vanilla cake I've written about before, sans sprinkles and with about 20% less sugar. 1.5 x the quantities of this recipe worked just fine for the 12" x 8" brownie pan but it took about 50 mins to cook and I had to cover it with foil to stop it browning too much. The frosting quantity was just about right too for a decent crumb coat and frost. The grey was achieved using a few pin pricks of AmeriColor Super Black and a touch of blue and it was decorated with chocolate wafer squares, coconut, smarties and oreo cookie wheels. Those are Chupa Chups antennae. There wasn't a scrap of cake leftover, which is a shame because it was delicious.
