With the huge floods going on over the weekend, I’ve been thinking about my Dad. He like many of the farmers up home have their work cut out for them over the next few months, getting things back to normal.
So i thought I would tell you how spoilt he was for his 60th this year. Not only did he get lovely presents and taken out to dinner but I made him a cake!
What?? He’s a farmer, he likes sheep!
It’s a bit rough as I was just learning the delicate art of cake decorating. I used butter icing for the face, it was very interesting trying to get it black (a tip I have found out since is to use coca and then the colouring). The white icing was icing sugar and egg-whites with marshmallows stuck on it, as plain butter icing was too yellow. My dad is spoilt isn’t he!
