21st Birthday Drip cake
My little pumpkin (he’ll kill me if he knows I’ve told you that) – is 21 today!
He was meant to arrive around the of 9th November, but he decided to play trick or treat
on me the night before Halloween…….. and turned out to be the best treat ever by lunchtime on the 31st. (Although I did have a quick look to see if he had ‘666’ stamped on his forehead……haha).
He’s not actually a big fan of Halloween, I expect having you’re Birthday on the one day of the year when people go around dressed in weird clothes scaring the beejeebers out of each other gets a bit wearing after a couple of years – like having your Birthday on Christmas day.
But he does like cake, and his favourite is Red Velvet, so although he said he deffinately didn’t want any fuss or a cake for his Birthday, there was no way he was getting away with that one!
So – as a compromise, I’ve kept it simple and made a Red velvet drip cake topped with all his own favourite treats. And no references to Halloween apart from the orange and green tones (oh and the red ‘blood’ coloured crumbs………..)!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALISTAIR! xxx
