My guest blogger is dragging heels, so hopefully that will be ready next week,
So this is just a quick one. We’ve had a very nice day today, although the birthday cake I made didn’t turn out quite as pretty as I’d hoped. Stupid fan ovens are the bane of my existence. They dry everything out (although not the cake, as I’ve learned to add a little extra liquid) and, especially bad for cakes, make everything bake uneven on the tops. HATE THEM. I forgot to turn the bottom cake upside down for frosting (bright pink) so it ended up like some sort of insane Barbie-land mushroom.
We went to Forbidden Planet in Bristol, where Princess decided there was something she MUST have:
It’s what all the fashionable six-year-olds are wearing these days, and since it was her birthday, we gave it to her. We’re not sure why she loves Ghost Rider so much, but she does. She draws him too.
And I got a darling pair of shoes, very unlike me because they’re wedge heels but I couldn’t resist them, they are so Carmen Miranda/Miami fun (and on sale!):
They’re actually a softer shade than they appear here. Just a little present for me, too.
So that was my day.
