Monday Ta-da! - M&M birthday cake

We have had a very busy week which included Minibakebakegirl starting secondary school.  She has settled in quickly, making lots of new friends and looking very smart in her new uniform.  On Friday we went to a celebration evening of what the new students had been doing in their first week of getting to know the school and each other.  There was also a "freshers fair" in the gym showing you what clubs are on at lunchtime and after school.  So many good ones - the knitting club looked great!  Today is the first day of her new timetable and probably the start of homework...

Friday was also Hubby's birthday, so when we got home I went straight into the kitchen to make his cake. I made a chocolate cake and covered it in chocolate buttercream and M&M's.  Every year Hubby gets a box filled with M&M's from his Mum and Dad as part of his presents - this year it was a seed tin - which will come in handy at the allotment.  We enjoyed the cake with family on Saturday afternoon.    

When on holiday in Devon last month we visited Plymouth.  We learnt that the Mayflower set sail on Hubby's birthday on the 6 September 1620.   There is a plaque by the Mayflower steps that was unveiled 350 years later on the day Hubby was born.  

Thanks for visiting, see you next week,
