See this bowl of flowers. They are straight from our garden. They are all edible, well, that’s what we’re hoping because we used them in our cooking. You see, we’ve been watching Masterchef and it has become a bit of a running joke in our house to pay out anyone who sprinkles flowers on their plate. Flowers are the new micro-herb of garnishes. They are they new “dirt” of plating up. All the hipsters are doing it. We all know next year people will be commenting that “flowers were so 2012”.
Anyway, we decided to decorate my Mum’s 60th birthday cake with flowers because we are cool like that.
We are so on trend. Even using the phrase “on trend” is on trend. Next year, it won’t be, like flower garnishes. Speaking of on trend. Here’s an Instagram montage of the cake. We Instagramed the shit out of it. It’s very hip and on trend to Instagram the shit out of food.
The cake was a success. All of Mum’s super cool, hip, on-trend friends told us so. And our kids couldn’t get enough it.
Most of all Mum loved it. Here’s a pic of her telling me with her eyes just how cool she thought the cake was and how lucky I was to be married to a man who knows how to cook.
Happy Birthday Mum.
Happy Birthday to your mum! The apple does not fall far from the tree hey. She has super funky glasses and your smile x
It’s so on trend to comment on blogs that are so on trend 🙂
Love the photo of you and your mum – two gorgous ladies xx
Cake looks amazing !! Hope you all had a blast xx
Love it, Bianca. Great pic of you and your mum too – I can see where you get your ‘on trend’ tendencies from – those glasses of your mothers are faaaabulous! xx
Hey B I just wanted to say that if I comment on your blog with my phone it doesn’t appear if I look at the same post on my computer. The same thing happens when I post a comment on WoogsWorld & I can’t figure out why because a few of the blogs I comment on use Disqus & it doesn’t happen on them….
Anyways, cake looks delish! Hope you all had a fab time xx
SO on trend! You really made those flowers the “hero” of the dish at the “pointy end” of your day of cooking!!! If Matt Preston said “hero’ and “pointy end” one more time this season I was gonna lose my shoot! ps the choccy cake looked DIVINE!
Clever girl! 🙂
Gorgeous pic of you and your mum! You are so alike! Which after I read your last post, makes me think how much I hope me and my girl are as close as you two when I’m 60! Even if we don’t look as alike!
