Well i couldn’t just sit peacefully after yesterdays disaster, even though all you wonderful people loved it and wrote me such lovely comments ! I had all morning free so decided to give it another go. But this time i tried what i knew i could not go wrong with.A chocolate and almond cake, my perfect birthday cake. I am truly satisfied now and can be sure the rest of my day will go well. More on the recipe later. Have to run now… hubby just got back with a wonderful bag of goodies! Cant wait to check it out !Cant believe i’m 27 today …. i’m getting old !!!
