We have a lot of birthdays this month, DD3 was the 16th, DGD1 is 15 today, and the twins will be four on Tuesday to name but a few.
Part and parcel of birthdays in our family is a birthday cake. When my children were young shop bought cakes were very expensive based on my income and so I have always made them. Their friends use to think it was amazing as their parents bought their cakes and they all loved the different home made ones my children had for their birthdays. Have to say between about 10 and 14 they were often embarrassed by the cakes and wanted shop bought, but that just did not happen.
Anyway last Saturday I attended out of hours doctor with what was diagnosed as a frozen shoulder, been a week of little sleep. mega amounts of strong pain killers, I normally do paracetomol and nothing else, and me being spaced out unable to function.
So got hubby to drive me to the shop the other day to buy stuff to make cakes with. But took the decision to buy a plainish sponge for them all and just going to decorate the shop bought plain.
Not sure any of them will particularity notice, and I am sure the fact they get a cake will be all that matters to them but have to say do feel slightly guilty that I am cheating. But better a cheating cake than no cake I suppose as I am not sure how they will turn out as the brain is struggling to put one foot in front of the other let along weigh correctly and cook.
Wonder what I will get for my birthday at the end of the month, shop bought or home made.....
