On April 14, Adam turned 30 and we celebrated by eating tasty things. Unfortunately we couldn't have a nice big party with all our friends, but it was nice to spend the day together drinking coffee and playing board games and eating squirrels. Well, replica squirrels.
|Second attempt was a winner - these are Edmonds basic biscuits flavoured with a little cocoa and cinnamon.|
|They look so tasty... (they were - I tested a few for quality control purposes)|
|The icing process begins...|
|Lots of squirrels!|
|Ever wondered what a small woodland creature tastes like?|
|Icing was easy with those squeezy plastic bottle things - best invention ever!!|
|I found some special bronze edible paint to make some of the squirrels look more authentic|
|The Birthday Roast Dinner|
|Now for Adam's cake - a replica doughnut!|
|Is it a cake or is it a doughnut? Trippy.|
|Who needs a fork when you've got a giant, sharp knife to taste with?|
Actually Adam is lying in that last picture. Lemon cake with chocolate icing is definitely not a combination I'd recommend.... Oh well - I'll have to try again some other time. I can't see Adam complaining about being a doughnut/cake tester...
(Ooh - looks like we're even on the lying front - I did promise that the next post would be about our holiday to Spain/France.... Better luck next time!!!)
