I’m of the ilk that cake should be part of every celebration – new job, new house, anniversary… whatever the party, there should definitely be cake. Take our wedding for example – I was dreaming of the cake long before I started thinking about the dress!
Luckily Kevin is equally infatuated with cakes – though he’s usually more involved in the eating part of the process than the design and creation! But that gets flipped on its head when it comes to his birthday. Every year he spends a good couple of days mulling over what type of cake he wants this year – the flavour, the height, the decoration… he thinks of everything.
This year his request was simple… “I want that cake surrounded in Kit Kats and topped with M&Ms,” he cheerfully exclaimed a week or so ago. Since this wasn’t a very original cake design, I suggested he think about it for a couple of days and see if he could come up with a way to make it a little more personalised. But nope – that’s what he wanted, so that’s what he got!
