74 / 365 Birthday Cake prep

I’ve got a birthday cake to make tomorrow, a delicious chocolate one filled with chocolate ganache and covered in pink and white icing. I was supposed to make it at the weekend so the icing had time to harden but I forgot key ingredients on my last shop and haven’t had chance to get them until my weekly delivery comes in the morning.
It’s been ages since I made a cake and I’m quite looking forward to it 🙂 I’m planning on making an extra one for tomorrow nights dessert.

Read 100 books – #8 – George’s Marvellous Medicine

I’m a little out of order as I’m still reading my number 7 book, Bram Stoker’s Dracula but I only read that at bedtime so it’s taking a while.The 8th book I’ve just read is one KayCee asked for; George’s Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl.
Both KayCee and Ella loved it and laughed out loud in places, especially when Grandma shot into the air after having her first dose of the medicine.

Roald Dahl stories are brilliant. Charlie and the Chocolate factory was one of my favourite books as a child and I’m loving that the girls are wanting me to read them to them.

We’ve now started on The Twits 🙂
