Sue wanted a cake for a friend with a milestone birthday. There was to be a big party for both adults and children and she wanted a variety of cake to cover all tastes. So as there were two numbers involved, we had the 6 in carrot cake and the 5 in sticky chocolate. The birthday girl is a serious book-lover and rather than any written message, we went for 65 little books, all made of sugar scattered over the cake. I had a lovely message from Sue after the party to say that the cake had been a huge success and that the books had been carefully counted by the children before being devoured and that almost the whole cake had been eaten by the end of the evening.
