Gifts made and wrapped, cake iced.


The embroidered tie was made for my birthday by my friend Carolyn, at a very busy time for her, when she was packing to move to UK after 6 years living in France.

    What a surprise – my daughter embroidered exactly the same tie for my mother, and we use it every year. A very special family heirloom. Your cake looks beautiful.

    That says it!
    Hey, nobody’s wearing a tie there! Or do you mean the belt on the cake? Surely you can’t eat embroidery?

    I cheated and bought the cake, the gifts are half-wrapped, and the bad news is I haven’t done 6WS yet! (but I will 🙂 )

  11. You sound well organised. That is a lovely embroidered band round the cake – it must have taken your friend ages to do.

    Beautiful, V. My Beloved Sandra’s family starts rolling in Sunday night. fourteen for Christmas dinner…Oy.


    • Sadly, I am no longer capable of coping with such numbers – gone are the days of working full time, up to and including Christmas Eve, coping with children and horses and still managing to cook a huge Christmas lunch, and giving a party at home the next day.

      I hope you have a lovely day, and enjoy the presence of so many guests.


  14. Lovely…happy birthday beautiful one. 🙂 cheers!


  15. the embroidered tie adds such a lovely touch to this cake and wraps it in the warmth and preciousness of friendship. How truly delightful.
