Kate's Birthday

I went down to ANdrew and Lynne's for Kate's 15th Birthday Tea.
Kate wa shaving a real Kate day still in her PJ's
Lynne's folks are in NZ so it was just us with roast lamb and a cake that Kate and Lynne made.
There was a lot of laughter and talk about how big the cake was; How Heavy and how long it took to make
When we had finished the meal Nick and Andrew headed out to the outside fridge (to get the crane to lift it?) and came back in with the cake.
I went to lift it and assess its weight based on my skill of a baby's weight. I would have said 5kg.
So a tall cake with Smarties (M&M's I think) on top and Kit Kat on the sides.

So Nick emptied the dishwasher to find big plates for the cake serves, as Lynne prepared a knife and candles for the CAKE
Much deriding by Nick of Kate's skills as she lit the candles But she did get them all out in one puff!

Then she cut the cake, and my surprise at the inside was worth it they said!

A rainbow Cake.
Beautiful to look at, but rather heavy and sweet. We all only had one slice, if that and Kate was taking it to school next day 
So a fun thing, more than Bake off Competition!!
Then finished the evening off in the Spa on a  balmy evening!
