Ever since I saw the
Fairy Bread cake on Raspberri Cupcakes, I knew I had to make it, and I knew it would be the perfect birthday cake for one of girls at work. If only her birthday would hurry up!
I used the butter cake recipe from the AWW Birthday Cake book, which is frankly the best butter cake recipe ever and iced it with a white chocolate butter cream.
I baked the butter cake in a square cake pan and then cut into smaller triangles, to moreÂ accurately represent fairy bread quarters. 🙂
Winning cake all round.
#thissundaylife is #fairybread cake because frankly it is darn smart way to eat fairy bread when in double digits.
Four years ago, I woke thinking it would just be like any other Saturday.
It would be a day of markets, washing and maybe some baking.
Instead, it was not.
Four years ago, I went to sleep that night without a Papa.
Pabbi, so much has happened in the last four years.
I’m finally working in tax.
Karl is still in Iceland.
Mamma moved to the bush.
Matthew has taken over your space in the laundry.
There is a super cute little boy next door now.
The birds still play in the bird bath in the back yard.
You would hardly recognise the interior of the house now.
Miss you Pappa-san
#ThisSundaylife is listening to Australia All Over
It is Black Star Coffee and fruit toast on #figgjolotte
It is a matching pair of Nexus 7 tabletsÂ as my little brother and I read the news from overnight #newsjunkies
#thissundaylife is a #blessingway for a very beautiful family.
A day of stories, love, rituals, tears, good energy, memories, wishes and more love.
I first met this girl on
August 6, 2007 at this concertÂ and then a few days later we were piled in a red Land Cruiser heading up to Noosa for an adventure. A 20hr adventure up the coast which was a great time.
6 and a half years later, we’ve all been through a lot. Â This girl is a mumma, with a wee babe due very soon.
I made hummingbird patty cakes with cream cheese icing from the
Crabapple Bakery cookbook to take along for the the blessing way.
Finally a front on of that marvellous belly.
A blessed belly, waiting for a rainbow baby to come earth side.
#thisSundaylife is a bbq dinner on the verandah.
It is answering “What that?” questions from the toddler next door.
It is racing out on to the street when the colours turned.
