We celebrated yesterday at Paris House in Woburn (picture below) with a lovely dinner attended by my Grandma, Aunts and Uncles and my cousin Charles who has just returned from working in Ghana. Paris House was built for an exhibition in London many years ago and was then transported to Woburn Abbey where it was used as a hunting lodge. There are hundreds of deer in the surrounding parkland and it is very idyllic.
My mum loves sunflowers and last year made a sunflower "room" on her allotment. So this was the the perfect theme for her cake! It was a lemon drizzle cake with cherries and buttercream, sugar sunflowers and mini champagne truffles from Hotel Chocolat.
