It has been a busy few days here at The Snail Garden. We have 3 birthdays within 11 days of each other - not very well planned!! :) We started off with my birthday and I have to share this card from my husband ...
I think it is probably the most romantic card that he has given to me. :))
Birthday equals cake and I spent part of the morning baking.
For my birthday treat I made these Whoopie Pies from a recipe I found here. Bang goes my diet!!
The next day my sweet boy turned sixteen.
After much searching I had finally found a 16th birthday card with Son on it.
Jay said "You are never too old for a helium balloon". :)
Of course there was a birthday cake ...
... with 16 candles.
I borrowed this idea from Sue at The Quince Tree.
Taking her advice I made my layers thinner, because we are greedy and like to eat a whole slice! :) My cheeky son quipped that it looked like a coming-out cake!!
I also made some Union Jack cupcakes for the birthday boy.
I'm never going to lose weight before my holiday!!!! ;)
