Happy Birthday

15 Jan


Well today “Out of the Birdcage” turns one, it was exactly a year ago that I started to embark on the blogosphere and, thinking I would probably be talking to myself, I am really honoured to have picked up a few followers on the way, and have been given the opportunity to meet and chat with some truly talented people.

To celebrate I thought I would share the cake (courtesy of Donna Hays ideas book) I made for my nephew who turned one at the end of last year and my wonderful dad who is one year off of 70 (although don’t tell him I told you that). Not a calorie in sight! Obviously there is a huge link here to a colour consultant, although that said this is what a couple of the places look like when I turn up to advise them on the best colour for the bathroom!!


Thank you…. and here’s to seeing what the next 12 months brings….. meanwhile on with the colourful adventure…..

      Merci! They are made of Honeycomb, but if you use this you need to do it at the last minute otherwise it goes soft and deflates a bit….I hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year

    Happy Anniversary! Does that cake taste as good as it looks?

      Thank you, it was yum and possible part of the reason why I was struggling to do the zip up on my dress yesterday morning! But that could also be due to the amount of christmas cake, gingerbread men and chocolates I have eaten over the last couple of weeks! πŸ™‚
