And you still had time to bake a cake? And what a beautiful cake it was, Brydie! I’m sorry to hear everyone’s been crook, hope you’re all on the mend now. Happy Birthday, Monkey Boy!
What a beautiful cake. It looks so moist and delicious and I love how you’ve decorated it. Your week sounds chaotic. Mine I think has been a little more relaxing.
That’s absolutely wonderful!
So sorry to hear that you’ve all been crook, Brydie. No fun when kids end up in hospital.
Still, you’ve shown remarkable resilience by baking such a knockout cake – wonder woman!
Oh what a week 😦 Not a good one at all. I’m amazed this cake still managed to feature – it is a spectacular creation – and hope that the next week is a little (or a lot) easier going.
That looks soooo good. Definitely a cake to cheer you up!
Just looking at that cake makes me happy 🙂
Oh no! I hope the monkey boy that went into hospital and got the hives is ok! You did so well to get this gorgeous cake out amid the chaos!
What a week! Sending loads of love and maybe I’ll just grab a strawberry in passing (slap my fingers). Hope you are all feeling better now. I always love your celebration cakes, they have that fresh look coupled with pzazz that makes them special 🙂
Such a fantastic looking treat! Beautiful!
Thanks for all the kind words everyone. This week is looking a whole lot quieter!… and healthier

Fantastic photos, what a joy to see such freshness and sweetness combined!
Hope that you are all totally better and the week is going smoothly.
What an up and down week you’ve had! Hopefully this one is going along a whole lot better. At least you had cake to see you through.
Hives can be SO scary!
Pretty pictures indeed! 🙂 Sometimes baking is just the sort of ‘therapy’ needed during crazy weeks!!
