On 28th July it was Geoff’s 65th birthday we celebrated by having friends and family round for tea and cakes.
The baking had started 10 days before when I baked two fruit cake’s Â in a number 6 and number 5, after feeding them with brandy for a few days I then put the marzipan on and hoped that I would get them to cambridge in one piece.
2 carrot cakes, Â 2 molly cakes, 24 plain cup cakes, 24 chocolate and beetroot muffins
30 ginger biscuits Â and finally 12 carrot and cardamon cup cakes.
The cakes were enjoyed by everyone, although I could not bring myself to eat any after baking all day and making what felt like a thousand cups of tea, BUT I made up for it the following day 🙂
