Yesterday Laura, Zachy and Noah made some pretty paper bunting and a birthday banner which added a nice splash of colour to the hall. Today's it's Laura's birthday and we celebrated with a birthday brunch, which has become a family tradition. I finished making the birthday cake last night, filled it with jam and butter cream, added a layer of butter cream all over and lastly a layer of fondant icing. The final touch was fondant flowers and butter cream rosettes.
Kate, Seb and Jake couldn't come over but the rest of the family called in for a few hours and we had a nice celebratory brunch. We all had our fill of croissants, brioche, crumpets, pancakes, potato cakes, Welsh cakes (my favourite) and strawberries, all washed down with a sparkling glass of bucks fizz - perfect.
Laura blew out her candle and then each of the children had to have a turn too, then we cut the cake and I'm pleased to say it tasted yummy.................
Another lovely family celebration, now it's time to put my feet up and watch a spot of tennis.
