The beautiful peaceful gardens and Italian ambiance of Casalinga were the setting for the surprise 70th Birthday Lunch for Brenda last week and this pretty Pink Roses and Midnight Garden Lace Chocolate Cake looked so pretty on the table against the backdrop of greenery twinkling in the South African sunshine. Brenda met my mom in hospital over 48 years ago. My mom had just given birth to me and Brenda was about to give birth to her beautiful daughter, Robyn. They became life long friends and as my mom couldn’t be there for Brenda last week, it was so special for my dad and myself to be there with Brenda, her family and friends for her special celebration. Thanks to Tracey, Tom and Robyn; Brenda enjoyed a special lunch in a beautiful setting.
I made pretty pink sugar paste roses and added Midnight Garden Crystal Candy Lace to a chocolate ganached cake. I used the same mat to emboss the pink board around the cake and finished off with a woven pink ribbon.
Happy 70th Birthday Brenda!
