Yesterday I threw a surprise party for Sarah's birthday because last year no one went to her birthday dinner (it wasn't my fault, I was on holiday in Japan) because no one knew it was her birthday!
Before and after shots of the cake. No, it is not on fire. Check out Dania's lovely red lipstick in the background.
I made the Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake from Nigella's website (she decorates with classy sugar roses, I used giant sprinkles and kiddy candles). Sarah seemed to enjoy it. It was as yummy as it looks (the icing alone contains a block of chocolate, a tub of sour cream, butter, golden syrup, vanilla and sugar).
