Happy Birthday Sweet Daughter


My eldest daughter celebrates her 11th birthday today! They grow up so quickly, but at 11 she is still my little girl. Her wish for today is a sleepover, thank goodness for the beautiful weather, as I have a tent erected in the garden-so they can make as much noise as they want (with in reason)! her second wish was for a chocolatey birthday cake, so I consulted my "500 Fabulous Cakes and Bakes" (by Ted Smart) book. She opted for the "best ever chocolate cake", which indeed is very chocolatey and I used about 18 eggs in the making (I only had little bantam eggs).The added embellishment of numerous bags of maltesers and 2 flakes, I think gives it that chocolaty edge! So we have renamed this cake "Chocowockyfantubulios" I only have about another 485 cakes in the book to try out.

Must go , have a barbeque on the go and cake to eat.

Happy Birthday Beautiful Daughter

What a wonderful cake! My daughter just tuned 11 too. It must be the in thing because that is what she had--a sleepover. Good thinking on you part to put them in a tent. I survived my daughter's--they actually were not all that noisy but they stayed up until about 4:00 am.
