Em's 21st Birthday

Em with her birthday cakeToday Dad and I travelled down to Bournemouth to see Emily, my littlest sister, for her twenty-first birthday. I cannot believe she's twenty one. That makes me feel quite old! That's Em up there with her birthday cake that I made for her.

Mmmmm. Chocolate cake!I was chuffed with the cake. It turned out really well and it's SO chocolatey! The recipe is a Nigella one from her book Feast. The recipe can be found by clicking here.

We had a nice day - the weather was beautiful. We had lunch at a great restaurant called WestBeach and we sat and ate outside on the deck that overlooks the seafront. So nice! I had some of the best fish and chips I've ever had.

I've had a busy couple of weeks, hence the lack of beads and blogging but I have a free weekend coming up and I'll be melting some glass. Stay tuned for new beads .....


  1. Cor! What a yummy looking cake, bet there's none left now :-) Look forward to the new beads.

  2. I guess your sister likes chocolate then!

  3. The cake looks Gorgeous, your sister is very lucky but for the BEST fish and chips you need to come to Scarborough, North Yorkshire, we are famous for them here.
