But today is one of my bestest friends fake birthdays. We decided that the end of December was a terrible time to have a birthday because we were always too focused on Christmas and we were always really short of money and sometimes forgetting about our dearest friend! :O So like the Queen, this year we moved her birthday to a more convenient financially stable time of the year. (Although as far as I know the Queen moved her birthday so that it fell at a prettier and warmer time of the year).
Because she loves peppermint I tried to make this cake:
But it ended up like this:
Then when making the buttercream, I decided it wasn't green enough so I packed in the dye. And when putting the buttercream on I couldn't get it smooth enough even when trying to smooth it with a boiling hot metal spatula. So I tried to hide the ugliness of it with chocolate chips and crushed up mint slice biscuits. But if you ask me it still looks like Oscar the Grouch's hairy butt.
I just really hope it tastes better than it looks. We shall find out tonight after dinner!
