I hope everyone has had a lovely day, whatever you’ve been up to for Valentines! Me and Liam had originally planned to spend the weekend in Oxford, but unfortunately he was told last minute that he had to work on Saturday, so now we’re saving it for our anniversary in April.

If you’re not interested in cakes or you’re feeling hungry you should probably look away now! For those of you that don’t know, I run a little cake business from my home.

My birthday was on the 30th July but I’ve managed to string my celebrations out for over a whole week! I didn’t do too much on my actual birthday as it was during the week and people were busy, but the weekend before I had a miniature tea party in my garden with my family, including my little niece who loves this kind of thing! Nothing fancy, just a few cakes and sandwiches and pretty tableware. Sorry about the dark photos..…
