My Birthday Cake this year

Gone are the days when you look forward to your birthday, the children days where you are bombarded with presents, gifts and big birthday gifts. Now, it is nothing but a recognition that you are a year older and this year for me, its what some people call a "quarter life crisis" although "third way life crisis" sounds more apt.
I must say though this is probably the first birthday in many years that i am celebrating it without the other half. It feels kind of funny seeing that we were on holiday for the last two birthdays too which reminds me that my grandpa has already left us for the other world for a year already as we speak. At least this time around, he has grandma to accompany him over there.

Enough of the morbid stuff.
This year even though the Wife wasn't around, they were her dear cousins Michelle and Alex who were kind enough to be around for my birthday and she even baked me a cake!

Complete with icing, decor and most importantly flavour!

A simple orange sponge cake with a chocolate icing that reminds me of a jaffa cake.

I wonder when i can taste another of her creations?
