Shut the gate I'm 48 !

As you can tell by my post title my mental maturity isn't quite keeping pace with my physical aging .
I'm off this morning to have morning tea with the girls but I haven't forgotten you . This delightful cake was once a double layer sponge with fabric jam and cream oozing between the layers but one day I ran out of stuffing and pulled the bottom layer off and took it apart . Really must fix it again .Anyway please help yourself to a piece of my birthday cake , mind the pins though .
PS It's Lisa from Lydias Treasures birthday today too so Happy Birthday Lisa !
