I have mentioned before that the CCD & Nunks (my uncle) are twins. For some reason, everyone pictures twins as children but if my first photo wasn’t clue enough as to their milestone here’s another one:
And for those of you still not sure.....
You may recall back in January how delighted I was when the lovely ladies at DiscountCoder.com gave me wonderful cake tins to make this celebration cake.
Both the CCD and Nunks like their cakes unfussy and traditional so it had to be a classic Victoria sponge (for recipe click here)....
....and my pineapple fruit cake (for recipe click here) which has rapidly become the CCD’s favourite fruitcake!
It was a lovely day – we started out with lunch at The Wolseley where we were kindly given free champagne to help our celebration and then made the journey over the road to The Ritz for an afternoon of cocktails. It’s a tough life!
Happy birthday to CCD and Nunks as you begin your 8th decade!
