So.. the day of the party dawned and I got together with Miss J for the final touches to our party piece de resistance. The result was truly photo-worthy, although all these pics are from my mobile and don't really do justice to the masterpiece.
Of course, we used organic cream and jam in the middle of our non-organic, wheat and sugar creation. It's important to exercise contradiction whenever possible.It was hard to exercise restraint. It was tempting to just eat it with our hands.
My portion was an exercise in modesty. It was fab. I wanted more, but the moment passed without incident.
Happy birthday Mum! Next year we will add a third layer. And, in 14 years, rum!
