Last night we had a small party tea for Neil's birthday. It was just a simple affair but a great excuse for a party tea (Ben's favourite). (Sometimes it's only when you look at a photo you notice the bits where you've re-plastered and forgot to paint back over them-oops!)
I was so relieved that the birthday cake turned out okay, it was a recipe that I'd used before for orange and almond cupcakes but I was a bit anxious to see whether or not it would work as a cake. It did- yum yum! I'd be happy to share the recipe if anybody's interested (and as a side note- cupcake recipes translate fine as cakes, you just need to cook them longer than the instructions. Just keep an eye and when they start to turn golden, pop a knife in and check it comes out clean- if so it's ready).
