But it's my birthday cake I want to share with you all.
In the past, I used to decorate the kid's cakes. I'm a hopeless baker, so it'd always be a shop-bought cake which I'd make look like whatever the kids wanted...Here's a few I made earlier:
|For the 'lotsa sweeties' party...|
|The fairy party...|
|The Pirate party...|
|The Curse of the Were Rabbit film party...|
|The Despicable Me 2 Party...|
|The 'first day back at school after the summer, |
in new uniform with the new logo,
which also happens to be your birthday' party...
Actually - I think the last two were done by the kids for each other...I didn't have much of a hand in either of those.
And I like that they want to get involved - they decorated mine this year.
What you have to understand though, about the theme they chose, is that since I've written Granny Rainbow, my immediate family seem to have become obsessed with Marmaduke and Mrs Fluffy (Granny and Tom's cats, respectively.) For some reason, they want me to write a spin-off book about the cats. To include stories such as Marmaduke and Mrs Fluffy's Night on the Tiles. Marmaduke and Mrs Fluffy get chased by a big dog. Marmaduke and Mrs Fluffy have furballs. Marmaduke and Mrs Fluffy leave a headless mouse as a present.
I kid you not.
Needless to say, I've not written anything of the kind. But this fascination with the two cats has continued. So...
Have to admit, I thought they'd done a Rainbow Nyan Cat at first. Apparently it's Marmaduke chasing a rainbow! And we're now trying to eat it in such a way that Marmaduke doesn't get cut into 'til the last minute...
Anyone fancy a slice?
