21st birthday

This last weekend was spent in Wellington celebrating our youngest daughter's 21st birthday. Even though the weather was cold, rainy, windy and horrible we still managed to have a thoroughly great time in her flat with all her friends and quite a lot of family.
Phoebe was very interested in the decoration of the cupcakes...especially the jaffas.
Sarah wanted it to be an afternoon tea party outside in the garden, she had envisioned little cupcakes, cream scones, cherry cake, chocolate cake, lemon drizzle cake, platters of tiny sandwiches, etc, etc.....you get the picture.

Instead her flatmates did a splendid job making the flat very festive and all the food was brought out in relays, as everyone kept eating steadily throughout the afternoon.


No more 21st birthdays for a while now....my Mum's 80th next . I hope the sun will shine that day !

I am intrigued by the icing. Ours tends to be much stiffer here. Would you mind sharing the recipe?
