January is my Birthday month. So I hereby dedicate this post to Cake!
January 1984. It’s my 1st Birthday and Hello 80’s perm! I’m told it snowed heavily on my 1st Birthday and no one could get to my party. More cake for me suckers!
My mum made most of my cakes when I was a child so I welcome you to “Cakes of the 80’s”
This was my 5th Birthday cake and is a fairground carousel.
My 6th Birthday and a clown cake. Also not to be missed, the custard cream biscuits to the right. Love a custard cream!
I’m not sure which Birthdays the next two cakes were for but here is the cake shaped like a Cat. I can’t remember if this was meant to be Garfield or my cat Rusty who was Ginger. The green cake is Slimer from Ghostbusters. I remember the teeth kept falling out!
On a more serious note we fast forward to 2015. Where we lived in Sheffield, was this colourful row of houses. They always used to make me smile, especially when overlooked by that blue sky! The second picture is the view from where we lived. Sheffield is so hilly there are lots of spectacular views to be had across the city.
2016 saw our first January in the South and I managed to snap this gorgeous sunset picture.
January can be a long hard month for some people but I tend to enjoy it…but probably only because my Birthday is in it!
