So this weekend was my Mum's surprise Birthday party. Me and my sister have been planning it for months but she threw a spanner in the works by going into labour and giving birth to her baby in the back of her husband's car the night before the event. The party went on without them (sadly) and I made my Mum this pretty vintage style lace rose cake. All went well until after the speech when the cake stand decided to fall apart and the cake dropped onto it's side on the table and head towards the floor. Good job it was caught in the nick of time! It came off relatively unscathed to be honest and friends and family have enjoyed eating it today. So a stressful but enjoyable weekend and a lovely addition to our family, baby George.
