Present / Parcel Cake

50th Birthday Present / Parcel Cake
8" zesty lemon sponge, filled with lemon curd buttercream.
This cake was ordered by the girlfriend of the birthday girl's son and she was telling me how the birthday girl had never, ever had a birthday cake made for her before! 
Well, I'm delighted and honoured to have been the one to do it!

I received a lovely email from Cheryl (the customer) after the party:
Hi Suzanne
Just a quick message the party was a huge success and the cake was admired by everyone and tasted even better than it looked if that's possible. The birthday lady was soooo chuffed and loved it all.
Thank you
I hope the close-up pic shows the gorgeous sparkly lustre on the cake (and it's 100% edible!!)

Perfect Present!

Has there ever been a more perfect present for me?  
A truly thoughtful 'thank you' gift from a friend (and whilst I totally adore this gift, it really wasn't unnecessary!)  There's a perfect spot for it in my kitchen, so I shall ask Mr Pat-a-Cake to put it on the wall when he has a day off work!

Pay It Forward

I usually post pictures of cakes....

...  but today, I came across a site that although very new, I love the idea of.

Please take a look, follow and spread the word!

Someone I know paid for a brownie when they were in McDonalds and asked the person at the til to put it with the order of the person behind them...  no reason - just 'because'.  A random act of kindness.  Just little things to bring a smile to someone's face.

I love this idea.
