Big Birthdays are not so bad after all! I am having a really wonderful day – on this my BIG Birthday! Lots of beautiful cards, surprise presents and yummy scrummy things to eat. I have received lots of Happy Birthday wishes from people I have never met but who I am proud to call friends. People I’ve ‘met’ through various forums, Facebook and of course, Fairy’s Blog! Thank you ALL! You have all made my day even more special.
I am spending the day with my lovely, generous and thoughtful husband, plus our three gorgeous girls, Marigold, Mariella and Fairy. It is Magic! Thank you, Ian x
I was reminded of some Birthday cakes we made a few years ago when Guinea Culture Blog asked me if they could use the photos of the cakes on their Blog (yes!) and so I decided today was a good day to add them to Fairy’s Blog too.
Mavis and Mabel were our lovely girls and the inspiration for these cakes.
You can hardly tell which are the real piggies and which are the cakes!
The cakes were so lovely it proved very difficult to slice into them! We managed it though. Look! Jam sponge cake! Scrumptious!
Mavis looked good enough to eat!
To show solidarity with our piggy’s, my Birthday Cake this year is a cauliflower!
We had a lovely afternoon tea complete with cucumber, ham and salmon sandwiches, plus dainty cakes and a pot of Assam tea. This was part way through.
On your Birthday you are allowed to leave your crusts!
We also welcomed a new piggy into the fold. Meet Lloyd! A gift from a very special friend
We had bunting too!
You may be wondering where Fairy fitted into the day . . . . well, she received a snugly new Cuddle Cup from Cavy Couture, so she felt special too!
‘Err, is it MY Birthday too?’
But it all got a bit too much for her – zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!
Happy Birthday everyone
