She bakes a great cake.
Vanilla sponge cake filled with cream and home-made plum jam. Decorated with whipped cream, almond slivers, grated chocolate and chocolate dipped strawberries
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.
