It is my boyfriend's birthday today and I've just spent the early part of the day making his birthday cake and decorating the flat for when he gets home. The cake is BBC Good Food's White and Dark cake which I've been longing to make for ages. Unfortunately, the dark cake broke in half when I cut it (hadn't discovered the trick to cutting cakes in half which is to hold them horizontally) but it still looked good when cut!
I love books, baking and my boyfriend, and love to write about the first two. I particular love "forgotten" books, books brought out of obscurity by republication and those still languishing in obscurity. I'm currently reading my way through all of the Virago Modern Classics, but taking in other books along the way.
