A Birthday Cake

Yesterday my daughter celebrated her 14th birthday with a group of her friends. They came on over during the afternoon, spent time together, then had the dinner cooked for them by my husband. I wrote a personification of one of the things they ate to add a little mystery to the day. I loved the answers you gave – and I think I will consider those things for my daughter’s 15th birthday party (especially the chocolate fountain! 🙂 ).

The mystery food was a chocolate birthday cake – my daughters’ favourite type of cake. Freshly baked and iced by me, the cake crumbled as I sliced pieces for the guests. Each teenage girl enjoyed their slice – with many asking for seconds.

A fun time was had by everyone at the party.

I would like to thank you all for playing along yesterday and sharing your guesses with us.

Did you enjoy the mystery post yesterday?

  1. Oh my word Colline! Now who would have guessed? You naughty lady! To keep me in suspense like that! LOL!

    Well, congrats to your beautiful daughter and to you for her birthday and may there be many, many more! I just wish her happiness, love and may all of the best follow her every day of her life. 😀

    That is one gorgeous cake Colline and for someone who doesn’t eat chocolate, I must say you even had my mouth watering! You’ve made your daughter’s birthday very special and I know that she and her friends had the most lovely time indeed! Thanks for sharing hon. Btw, great shots! 😀


    1. The girls had a great time and my daughter loved having her friends over.
      If I ever have you over for tea, Sonel, I guess I would have to bake a vanilla cake and top it with peaches and cream 🙂


      1. I am sure they did hon. You are such a thoughtful and loving mother. 😀

        Now that sounds like quite a treat Colline. Let me know when you bake that vanilla cake and I will get my pilot to rev up the Jet’s engines. 😆


  2. What a gorgeous cake Colline…wish your daughter a happy belated birthday from me. i am chuffed I got the answer right…that normally never happens to me. Oh and BTW…chocolate cake will be fine when I visit…hehehehehe


  3. LOL Colline – my favorite part of your post is that your HUSBAND did the cooking!!! Happy birthday to your daughter. Glad to hear the girls are still enjoying cake rather than into the teenage-girl phase of undereating to be thin.


    1. The cooking is his contribution to the party. When the girls were younger, it was a lot of work looking after them. Now that they are older it is a lot easier 🙂


  4. I’m with Tina … your *husband* doing the cooking for the party of Girls !
    Smashing cake …. mmmm
    What a lovely memory for your daughter in future years .


    1. My husband is famous among my daughters’ friends for his stir-fried noodles and they now expect him to make some for each year for the birthday parties! 🙂


  5. glad you got a piece of cake – I have thrown parties where I ddi not get any cake – or food -a nd well – that is cool. and the cake is cool. also – happy b-day to your daughter.


  6. Happy Birthday to her and My Best Wishes. And Congratulations for you dear Colline, this is your most beautiful day in your life, to be a mother 🙂 Yesterday it was my son’s birthday, and we talked on the phone and also skype… Thank you, Blessing and Happiness, love, nia


  7. Your daughter and I have a love of chocolate cake in common. I would have been one of those asking for a 2nd piece. Glad to read she had such a nice birthday.


  8. Sorry I have missed the mystery post and being late to wish your daughter a happy birthday (it’s been a very busy time here). The cake looks really delicious, Colline 🙂 I am sure everyone appreciated it.
