Last Saturday saw me pulling out food for 30 people, over two different meals! One was a birthday dinnerĀ for a friend’s 45 birthday, that’s where this cake was baked, and the other was just a meal for friends. And believe you me this 1 and a half kg cake wasn’t enough to feed 15 not-so-hungry mouths!

It was a dear friend’s 45 birthday and somehow i always end up baking the cake and bringing along at least 3-4 main course dishes and an equal number of starters :) This time was no different, not that I am complaining…I think cooking for people you care about only shows your love for them!

You get the picture, right ;)?
