Birthday Cake, Anyone?

Image 4

It is my second visit to Justine’s blog Eclectic Odds n Sods,  to join the The Tea Time event because I promised to bring cake to celebrate my Blog’s one year anniversary.

Justine expected me to bake a cake, but I had no time and would rather bring something that would not disappoint her, as she is a Master Chef UK (I just appointed her). 

This is a Raspberry-Champagne cake wrapped in white chocolate. This is my husband’s 2nd love, after me and daughter’s Fleur, of course.

I decided to bring his love-cake to the celebration, because when celebrating this blog’s anniversary, I must thank him the most for being my most patient, thorough and unpaid blog’s editor in chief. I exploit beyond measure his skills as an editor. He’s so dedicated to his role that when I post during the day without his final edition, he finds time during working hours to warn me of typos in posts just published. So…the first slice goes to him!

Enjoy the cake!

Now let’s raise the glasses of champagne…but…err…wait…sorry, we’re still waiting for Andy, Mara and Desley to bring the drinks!

Go there and join the Tea Time #6.

Don’t miss it.

  2. Qué suerte tener un ayudante tan especial y tan efectivo!
    Decididamente me apunto al pastel, se ve precioso y sin duda estará a
    un mucho más bueno, pero es cierto que con una copa de champan seguro que será mucho más delicioso.
    Si se necesita, puedo aportar alguna botella…

      1. Cuenta con ella, ya sabes que aquí tenemos el cava de Cataluña que es tan bueno como el francés (eso dicen…)
        Me gustó más la tarta maravillosa que las galletas, pero solo por tener una charla tranquila las dos, me conformo con las galletas y un cafelíto.
        Un abrazo.


  3. Cheers to the sweetest things in life: loving family, passions to share, friendship and last but not least, a Delicious cake! Keep me some, I am on my way with many bubbles XXX

      1. Oh ok we will have to save the champagne for another time… Perhaps my visit to Amsterdam ?
        But the coffee will do just fine in the meantime!


  5. I am sorry I missed this post. Yum, how good does that look?!?! And raspberry, chocolate, champagne – all of a girl’s favourite things. Fabulous!
    Sorry I didn’t bring the drinks, perhaps the empty beer bottles in my latest post might help explain…. xxxx
