It was my mother in law's birthday last Saturday so I wanted to make her day special with a few treats. I baked her a cake and had a go at covering it with icing and decorated it, my first attempt at writing with icing, too. I love baking but let's say my goodies usually look more rustic than this! Well even this one had its imperfections but I tell myself it's a sign that's properly homemade ;o)
I also enjoyed making her birthday card, carrying on the cake theme...
I added the final touches by wrapping her pressies with pretty papers, doilies and ribbons.
I am pleased to say I think she enjoyed it all and we had a great family afternoon together.
