How Every Dinner Party Should End

Last week, two old friends invited me over to their home for dinner. It was a lovely evening which ended with them bringing out this super pretty cake. On a side-note, the friend who baked this cake is so serious about baking that she is actually taking a cake-decoration class! Don’t you think it’s very intricately decorated?


It looked so ornate and perfect that I almost couldn’t eat it. Almost. Needless to say, I ate more than I should, and brought a whole lot more home with me 😛

I think ALL evenings should end like this, with a beautiful, and perhaps as importantly, large cake, being shared amongst a few good friends 🙂

Just one tip; when hosting a dinner party or a BBQ party, make sure you don’t get drunk. I learnt that the hard way when I hosted a BBQ party a couple of months ago and my drunkeness made me sleepy. By the time I woke up, most of the food was gone and half of the guests hadn’t had any of the good stuff. But we had a good time, that’s all that matters in such situations!
