Firstly I need to apologise for not posting a round up last week. My excuse was a friend’s 40th birthday.
Secondly I need to apologise as this week I am kind of breaking my own rules. Due to a friend’s 30th birthday.
Our very own Kerry, the brains behind this blog, is turning 30 – man she’s so young!
To celebrate I am offering her the scrummiest cake in the world that is constantly requested in my house for my the hubs’, son’s and daughter’s birthdays. I say offering. I’m posting the recipe here!
