My birthday cake

No it is not my birthday again at least not till next year....

But I just have to show you these photo's taken from Kathryn's blog of the men in her life making me a birthday cake....

Now Kathryn is doing some studying for a few papers to boost her qualifications ... her first paper was due on the weekend of my birthday and as I had been invited for tea  ... a cake had to be made, Kathryn was busy finishing her assignment so over to the boys to make a cake from a packet.


I just love the management levels going on here, obviously Ben was in charge of  reading the instructions on the packet....
                I have to tell you the secrete about the cake ... It was supposed to be chocolate but they bought a vanilla sponge oh well! white or brown it is a cake .....now it was cooked beautifully ... But they forgot to buy cream or something for the middle ... No sweat for the boys large and small ... they knew I liked chocolate so they used Hazelnut Chocolate spread ... must admit it was ingenious and different.
It is these little moments that tug at a Grandma's heart strings.
