My boyfriend's birthday was on the 2nd, and mine is on the 5th of January, but due to time constraints, my family held my birthday festivities today (on the 3rd) with a family down the road. I had a great time! The food was delicious as well, and thanks to my neighbours, I have a large bottle of red wine to enjoy when I get back home. One of the things I always like for my birthday is for mum to bake me a certain chocolate cake, pictured above, with a special butter glaze icing. Mmmmm death by chocolate fo sho. This cake will be my wedding cake, absolutely. Mmmmmmm.
