Preparing for TLW's birthday

Yes, it's that time of the year again where The Lovely Wife has a birthday! That means trouble for me because other than having to figure out a nice pressie or two for her, I also have to figure out a nice cake to bake for her!

The Lovely Wife's Birthday is on Monday but I've already started with her cake. A little early I hear you say? Well, that was the SAME thing that my little princess Sarah asked - "Why are you making Mummy's cake so early?" She nodded her head in understanding when I pulled her aside and told her I was making Mummy an Ice Cream Cake. To be precise, I am making a Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream Cake - or at least that's what I have planned...

The sponge cake base has been made as has the custard base for the ice cream. All that is left is to let the custard base get really cold, churn it into ice cream and then assemble the cake. Stay tuned for the results...and in the meantime, wish me luck!

If the cake doesn't turn out, you can always sink in a 5 carat diamond ring, that should make it a brilliant cake! LOL. You'll do well I'm sure.
