Meal 1 - Light salad for starter.
Meal 4 - Tea and sweet cake dusted with icing sugar. Not sure why I neglected to photograph the mail meal.....
This is actually my first ever vanilla sponge cake using the Australian Women's Weekly recipe.
If anyone knows my mother they know that this is her specialty.
I'm hoping that there's something in the genes.
Vanilla sponge cake, filled with cream and raspberries, iced with raspberry icing and decorated with sugar flowers.
As children my sister and I were spoilt when it came to cakes made by mum.
She made both our communion cakes and our birthday cakes were always chosen from the Australian Women's Weekly Birthday Cake Book and made beautifully by Mum.
We quite often got to have two birthday cakes. One for our family party and one for our friends/school party.
Of course my sister and I now have an addiction to eating the leftover cake batter.
Pudding covered with home made vanilla custard. A seasonal dad specialty for winter.
Yes I get my love of sweet baked goods from my father.
Got to love those Irish genes!
