I metnioned in my last post that my brother, wife and boys are at my parent's on holiday just now too. Well, at the weekend we not only celebrated our wedding anniversary but my oldest nephew turned eight years old. That's him at the back left of the photo.
It was very cute to see each of the boys almost as excited as the birthday boy when it was time to open his presents.
My sister-in-law is an excellent cake decorator and after spending several hours in the kitchen (and with a little help from my brother) this is the cake that she made.
Not only was there a Madeira Cake under all that icing but the shield was made of a wheat & dairy free cake for my 7 year old, Calum.His birthday is the next in line so I can already feel the pressure building for an impressive cake!
Finally, I knew there was a photo I'd forgotten to post on my anniversary post.
