Birthday Roses


The Queen, Cake, and Candles

Every year on The Queen’s Birthday we make a cake to celebrate her special day, and the girls sing “Happy Birthday dear Queen”. It’s always a mission to see how many decorations we can get on the cake. This year, it’s a rather restrained cake with only one candle and fewer decorations, although in a break with tradition the girls decided it needed to have bright yellow lemon icing.

I wonder if Her Majesty would approve of it? Of course, she’ll never have a chance to taste it as we demolish it pretty quickly on her behalf.
