Day 5

New cookie cutters - block printing letters.

Today is preordained creativity – a very good friend’s 40th Birthday, cause for celebration, and to get out my baking things. I treated myself to cookie cutters just before Christmas – they create block print style biscuits, perfect for writing messages. Over Christmas they were used to make Christmas cookies with initials so everyone knew whose biscuit belonged to whom – cause for excitement with the nieces looking for their initials! This comprised part 1 of my creativity for the day, a message of birthday wishes for the birthday boy!

Part 2 was to make his card nice and personal (though I have since realised I completely forgot to sign it! *smacks head with hand*). I love writing letters and cards for people, and just now I’m all about the striping and dotting letters..

And yes...just realised I forgot to sign it!

Part 3 involved baking his birthday cake – I haven’t baked an actual cake in a while (it’s been mostly cupcakes or soda bread) so I had to actually buy a couple of sandwich tins, guess I’ll have to do some more baking! Inspired by his love of chocolate cake it became chocolate chip with chocolate cream cheese icing, made with melted chocolate…

My part done, another friend cooked a feast of a roast dinner which we all enjoyed before the delight of dessert…
