Here is my son’s birthday cake, made a couple of days ago.
It’s Jamie Oliver’s party cake, chocolate sponge with a handful of flaked almonds in the mix (which all of us liked, except the birthday boy, alas…), whipped cream & blueberries in the middle and melted chocolate on top. It was pretty nom-nom-nom, though I say so myself.
Having a birthday so close to Christmas can be tricky. But you can never have enough candles at this time of year, right? It’ll just get better and better as he gets older.
