Tom's 16th birthday cake was simple as birthday cakes go. An easy all-in-one sponge lavishly iced with chocolate butter cream (6oz butter, 10oz icing sugar, 2oz cocoa, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 1 tablespoon milk) and finished off with a bag of Maltesers. The Maltesers made it impossible to cut thin slices. Nobody minded about that.
I took a lot of photos of my white hyacinth. A lot. It smells delicious.
Lentil and barley stew. Brown and wholesome food to counteract the cake. Very tasty too.
