Itsa piece of cake!



Easter's elongated into harvest with the school holidays falling after the main celebrations. Not sure why this has involved us, seeing as we neither celebrated in church or go to school, but it does seem that religion and state education rule the nest when it comes to holidays. 


I'm grateful for all, as it means that we're gifted holiday after holiday, reminding us that life's one big celebration. 

And in my mind, celebration equals cake. 

Not needing any other prompting, I can find a celebration cake for any day of the week... happy monday cake, happy outa work cake, happy pay day cake. And it doesn't have to be chocolate. But it always helps!



Without an oven to wait around for, it also means you can whip up a raw cake in minutes, devour in seconds ... or, like my beloved, you can flourish in discipline and have a slice every day of the week. 

Extending the festivities to prompt your busy minds eye that you are worth the ceremonial worship.

And while I create the finishing touches, lovin' the ceremony a bit more, the girls grab hand-fulls of doughy delight and animatedly sculpt cup cakes in colourful cases, fru fruing their fanciful creations with lavender flowers, calendula and pollen.

It'sa piece of cake. 
Child's play. 
And we all get to feast upon the ritual of celebration at the altar of our kitchen table.
