The 10th June is an important day for my husband’s side of the family; it’s my sister in law’s birthday, it’s the day Billy was released from hospital when he was born prematurely and it’s the anniversary of the death of a much loved Nana. These facts call for cake!
This year we gathered together to enjoy the sunshine and a barbeque and I took these cakes along for pudding. I used a recipe from the BBC website, it was a slightly unusual recipe in that it uses yogurt which makes it really moist. I’m afraid to say there was more cheating going on and I resorted to ready made icing (thank-you Betty Crocker!), I’m refusing to feel guilty about cheating – too much work to do at the weekends which just gets in the way of everything. I may have felt slightly guilty when everyone was saying how nice they were, especially the icing 😉

love red velvet cupcakes! Your story about making cake for an important date totally reminded me of the Scrubs TV show episode in which JD and his brother did the same thing 🙂
