This comes with a warning....

... and those with a sensitive disposition may wish to avert their eyes.
But I'm not entirely responsible.
Several of you did request to see this.
And because it is my birthday.
And because I've reached the grand age of 51.
For this one day only...
I give you me in the orange dress!!!

I even put on the tarty shoes!

But that's enough of that nonsense.
Back to the serious business of cake.
Nothing sophisticated for me.
No cheesecake or strawberries and cream.
Good old chocolate cake with Maltesers.

This is the last of the birthdays for a few months.
Normal service will be resumed next week.
Might even get some sewing done.
Look out for the spiders!


  1. Happy Birthday Gina !! you look great in the dress and shoes.

  22. Dear Miss Whiplash

    Those shoes, those tights... I daren't show Steve. Just one teensy observation - orange is supposed to be the fake tan, not the colour of your frock...

    Hope it was a good day.

    Love from

    A Rachnaphobe.

  23. Blimey! I am more than impressed that you can fit into the dress, because I saw how small it was!

    Mind you, if you keep making cakes like that it might not fit any more ;-)
