It's been a busy week and I'm exhausted, but I'm looking forward to some good ol' family fun tonight.

My sister Brenda just had a birthday and tonight we're heading out there for some dinner and cake. Sister Pam is making coleslaw with her most delicious slaw dressing, and Brenda's hubby is making the potatoes.

And this is my chicken breasts in mushroom sauce, bubbling away in my crock pot. It smells so good! Each time we have a birthday, it is tradition that the birthday person gets to pick the meal they want and the cake they like. This is what Brenda asked for.

.......and this is the cake she asked for. Well okay it's the "flavours" she asked for, vanilla cake with cream cheese icing. I decorated it this way, so this part is all my fault!

I remembered that awhile back I had bought some food colouring that was called "Neon", having neon colours. I already have a nice assorted stash of birthday candles, and these were almost the same colours as the icing so I decided to split the icing into quarters as you see here. Not a professional cake decorator by any means, but I think they'll get a kick out of it because it's different than usual.

So in a few more hours we'll be packing up the food and cake to load in the truck, and off we'll go to have a fun evening!

Nothing much for news at my end to report, doing some extra shifts at work while we train a couple of new people. The older I get, the less it takes to exhaust me completely. I hope you are all doing well, and having a good weekend!

Love Jude

Your cake has PRIDE! I like it and your right it is different. I bet it tastes as good as it looks!

I hope that you had a fun time. Sounds like Birthday's are still a special time in your family.

Stay warm and enjoy your weekend!

You're so right about the Gay Pride colours although I didn't think of it, and I'm someone who is all over that! :-) It tasted pretty good, vanilla with cream cheese icing, YUMMO!

It was a fun evening, dinner was great and I'm stuffed. Have a great weekend Jer! xox

Ha! That's a fun looking cake. But you needed like neon orange. You got safety yellow so you needed some other safety colors.

The lighting didn't show up the chartreuse green very well (it looks yellow here) but yeah I was disappointed in that orange!
