Spring is in the air
The flavour of the cake was a new one for me, lemon poppy seed mud cake. Alice Springs fruit trees are in full bloom and everyone is giving me lemons (thank you), so citrus mud it was!
The cake itself is only 7inches. Tiny! Not much you can do decoration wise, without it seeming crowded. I found this out the hard way when I made lots of flowers and then found the cake looked too busy, I wanted to keep it simple.
So I did. And was really happy with. One small problem for the poor birthday girl, even though it is September and Alice Springs, spring has not sprung and it would have had to have been the coldest, wettest Spring day in Alice on her birthday.
