Birthday Cake

Charlotte has turned FIVE today!  How can she possibly be five?  She was just a baby not long ago!

CharlotteHer birthday party was last Sunday, with a Barbie cake, but she was here for morning tea this morning, so I made her another birthday cake.

Charlotte's cakeThe cake is “Chocolate Raspberry Heart” from Nigella Lawson’s Feast.  The kids didn’t like the raspberries in the cream, though it made a great pink filling and the tartness of the berries offset the sweetness of the cake.  I topped the chocolate ganache with “fairy dust”.  Mmmmmmm…. Sugar on sugar!

Just for good measure, here’s a pic of Ben from Sunday.
