First fruits from my garden. Raspberries grow like weeds in my little garden. They pop up all over the place.
I used them to decorate C's birthday cake.
This recipe is from Nigel Slater's Appetite which he calls 'a simple cake to serve with summer fruit'. It has finely chopped dried apricots and ground almonds in it and is deliciously moist. I followed Nigel's suggestion of birthdayfying it with a little lemon glacé icing and a candle. I've made all the cakes in this book and they are all excellent.
