    birthday cake 2nd Mar 05 at 7:07 PM
    right then, here's one for the bakers....

    sunday, as you know is, mothers day. rather expensive one this year, as not only are there two sets of mothers and grandmothers to make feel special, it is also my MIL's birthday!

    she's decided that sshe is going to throw a tea party for family memebers on sunday night, so i thought as a nice surprise i would make her a cake.

    question is what type?

    first dilemma - one big one, or lots of little one arranged to spell 'happy birthday' or something like that?

    second dilemma - if i do go for the big cake, what type of cake?

    i was thinking along the lines of doing a chooccie sponge, topped with melted chocolate and maybe smarties, again spelling out happy birthday or something like that.

    any suggestions on the above?

    and if anyone could recommend some nice cake recipes, i'd be grateful
