Ruby wedding anniversary

40 years ago, when my mam was 19 she married my Dad who was 24. They had known each other for 4 months when they tied the knot. Explains the look of confusion on all the wedding photos.

Anyway, May saw them celebrate their Ruby Wedding Anniversary. They don’t really do wedding anniversary celebrations so this was reduced to cake and wine and dinner and a nice cup of tea.

I made them a cake from the Bake Off: Showstoppers book. Using a secret filling cake tin from Lakeland (about £19.99, but comes with inserts for regular sponges as well as hidden filling ones)

If you have the book, you have the recipe. I went for pink and white as a theme rather than all white, but as you can see from the photos it worked reasonably well. Both parents were happy and a lovely day was had by all.
