Melting Birthday Cake

Chocolate Cake

It’s hubby’s birthday tomorrow and I decided to make him a birthday cake. We had a really hot day today with temperatures reaching 28C and 100% humidity. This is extreme for Auckland so we’re all wilting. I iced my cake and it was so hot the icing and the chocolate buttons I used to decorate the side of the cake melted almost as soon as I put them on. I had to put my cake in the fridge. Luckily the end result tastes all right. I sure hope the promised rain arrives soon and cools everything down.

    We had a great day. We went out to lunch and kicked back in the afternoon. It’s hard to find much energy in this heat.
