Day 235

A day of baking to celebrate niece no. 4’s birthday … We also made paper chains and honeycomb decorations. A little play at the playground and miniature musical statues, she was happy 🙂
I baked scones for the first time, and if I do say so myself, they were pretty good!

Swirled a little blackberry into the plain sponge middle layer. Then converted the rest to chocolate, adding some blackberry to that too.

Two kinds of buttercream, blackberry then white chocolate and cream cheese, sandwiched and finished off around the sides.

Birthday message biscuits, which look pretty good in the afternoon light, despite me slightly over baking them! Bit of chocolate Philadelphia soon fixed that!

There’s the heart shaped scones on the cake stand in the background too!
