Birthday Cake

I had all kinds of grand plans for my Mum's birthday cake, but in the end it was a combination of simple icing and some papercrafting skills to make the bouquet of flowers. The cake is a 'Half Pound' cake from the Good Housekeeping Baking book, half a pound of butter, half a pound of sugar etc etc. I used to make it to take away on holiday when we were self catering as it is nice and moist and cuts well. As my mum and her friends are all excellent bakers it was a relief when it was cut and the fruit was nicely distributed not sunk to the bottom!
