Happy Birthday To Me

Baking, Food

Despite feeling terribly poorly for my birthday, I had a lovely time. Yesterday, I went up to London with my mum, dad and sister. We walked from Victoria to Trafalgar Square and had a coffee before meeting up with two family friends. We headed to The National Portrait Gallery, where we saw the Grayson Perry Who Are You? exhibition, I also saw the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize exhibition. Both were extremely good.

We then walked to Oxford Street and then went to Covent Garden to have dinner, in Gourmet Burger Kitchen and we then stopped into Paul’s Patisserie and bought an apricot tart to eat for dessert when we all got home. I also popped to the Moomin shop. (unhealthy obsession) and bought some goodies!

It was a lovely, but tiring day.

Today, despite feeling poorly, I had a lovely day at my work experience with Good Food, I then came home to presents and a homemade Chinese and chocolate mousse for dessert made by my lovely mum, and then birthday cake which was made by me and inspired by the Meringue Girls. It was a lovely chilled out evening.

Here is my cake, Chocolate Fudge Cake, with white chocolate ganache icing, meringue kisses and hazelnut praline. Delicious.

Thanks for reading,

A girl with an appetite for all things creative,
