we love these drink labels (thanks to my hand model, the Bald Eagle fresh from a trip to UK)
When his birthday cake was brought in, he had the biggest grin on his face. He really loved your black forest cake creation - soft chocolate sponge layers with pure cream (not that fakey white stuff!) and black cherries topped with a velvety smooth chocolate ganache. I also heard that Paprika's Hunky became an immediate fan also.
Splashie Boy's birthday cake - the yummiest ever black forest cake
Of course the party wasn't just to celebrate his birthday, it was also a time for all of us to catch up and have fun with the others. And indeed, we had loads of fun catching up. The spread was excellent as usual - I loved the hearty beef chunks hidden within the puff pastry crust (Splashie Boy's favourite dish also), the tender roast lamb, your infamous quail egg salad (had to grab the last bits as it finished so fast), roast chicken (which we had no idea how to carve up, duh!), ju hu char, siu yoke and roast duck from Sze Ngan Chye.
Just Heavenly's fantastic creations and my little own lemon sabayon tart (pssst, it is the not nice looking one that is about to crumble away...)
Thanks again for your generosity for hosting a great party. We both had a stupendous time and am looking forward to the next time. Thanks also for inviting new faces like J from Memoirs of Chocoholic and the Bangsar-babe, it was great to meet them.
Lots of love, hugs and kisses
Boo & Splashie Boy
p/s can I get your autograph?? You know you are super famous???? I just got my May issue of Harper's Bazaar (yes, one does need to keep up with the fashion world to look trendy) and you are in page 187 where they feature their hot and happening parties. It seems the Bazaar team loves your Spencer four seasons chocolate cake, chocolate pavlova, lemon meringue tarts, tiramisu in cups and Mars cheesecake. Gosh, I guess we should recruit them also for the Fatboybakes Fan Club.
