To celebrate, the four of us went bowling last weekend and then onto Frankie and Benny's (our usual restaurant of choice for all occasions). I cannot describe to you just how bad I was at bowling. It's been a while since we've been but there really isn't any excuse for the way I played last Saturday. But it was fun and that's why we were there (she says through gritted teeth. I'm a really bad loser).
While my daughter was at school, I spent most of Monday baking her a cake. I was pretty damn proud of it and she loved it.
But my baking was not over for the week. Oh no! On Tuesday evening, I was handed a letter from the 10 year old (nope, still doesn't feel real typing that number). Her school was having a bake sale on Thursday (she couldn't remember how long she'd had the letter for) so I didn't have long to come up with some baked goods.
I'd seen some ice cream style cupcakes on a baking program before Christmas and have been wanting to give them a go so on went my apron and I made these:
I was quite proud of these too and the sponge inside was lovely and they were probably the best cupcakes I've made. I wasn't sure if the cones would 'go' with cake but they did.
And if I wasn't feeling ancient enough having a ten year old child, it's my great niece's first birthday party today. Bring on the zimmer frame!
