Alastair is 6 years old tomorrow. Mairi and the children came over for morning coffee (in theory) and we decorated a cake* that I had made earlier.
Here is Mommy and her little 'helpers'.
I made a birthday card for Alastair using a snail image I found on the internet. This snail is on a scooter which is what Alastair is getting for his birthday tomorrow.
And here is the snail cake* complete with chocolate buttons, lime or should that be 'slime' greeen marshmallows and ice cream sugar crystals from the local Italian ice-cream cafe.
Oh boy! Is this what one might call 'All Hands on Deck' ?!!!
* The recipe I use is my mother's and is nothing like hers, i.e. mine is OK in texture but pale brown instead of deep chocolatey brown and tastes mostly of sugar.
