Easter comes early this year. My grandson usually misses out on birthday parties, as his birthday falls during the holidays. So this year he had an early one. Jack helped design his cake and ice it. We have so many family birthdays in April. I am going up to Canberra for my daughter’s 41st and her son’s 2nd birthdays. Canberra is very beautiful in Autumn with many deciduous trees. Must remember to take some photos. In between Canberra and Tasmania, we have Will’s 42nd and Hazel’s 1st birthdays in Melbourne.
Then I will be travelling to Tasmania for my Aunt’s birthday. Having only two of my mother’s siblings left of that generation in our family, it is a special time. I am not good at decorating, but hopefully the fruit cake will be delicious. I am still adjusting to our oven, and it is nerve wracking when cooking things like this.
Having measured the cake, I bought the cake container, without remembering that the icing would take up space. This one was really squashed into the box.
My uncle’s has had the sides sliced before icing, in anticipation, of getting it into the container.
So I shall leave you with a couple of Autumnal photos from our walk yesterday. I shall not be posting much in April, since we have friends coming to stay, as well as my going away twice for my annual pilgrimages.
I hope you all have a wonderful Easter break and I look forward to catching up on my return.
