I Cheated But.....


Hubby`s boys are down this weekend and the youngest one`s a birthday boy turned 12. Their father is a wonderful Dad. He drives 2 hours away on a "good" traffic day every other weekend to get them and then take them home again. I make a cake for birthdays so I thought I`d make something summery this time. I cheated. I used a white box mix and icing. Layered some icing and sliced strawberries inside with whole ones on top. It`s far from perfect looking, but I think it will still taste good. I made this last night but today I didn`t want to turn the oven on again. Makinge roast beef that`s in the crock pot right now and we`ll have it with gravy and mashed potatoes. I love crock pots.

I second the motion by the felines above. Thank you for visiting my Butler's Diary blog. Yours seems very interesting. I am sure that Mr Barton would sympathise with all the work that awaits you in the garden.
