Okay, you ask me to make a birthday cake for a dinner party - of course I'm going to do it - I love baking.
So, after a week of indecision, I get a recipe from a book - no one cup wonders for this cake (I make a very good chocolate cake with a cup of this and that).
The cake gets made from scratch - filled with real chocolate and walnuts and Drambuie soaked sultanas and the like - it's a lovely gourmet chocolate cake - recipe thanks to Gabriel Gate. Going by what I tasted from licking the bowl and beaters yesterday, it's going to be great!
Then I come home from meditation and ice it. Made the icing from scratch - the icing recipe I've been using since I started making chocolate cakes when I was ten-years-old.
So, I've made the birthday cake. It's for Pete's forty somethingth birthday. All I know is that Pete - an ex-workmate, is somewhere a few years older than me. And of course, it's not a birthday cake without smarties on it. One of the rules of birthday cakes is that they are decorated with smarties.
Therefore I think this is apt.
What's the bet I get into trouble?
