Birthdays aren't as fun as they used to be are they? When you're a kid, it's something you really look forward to, and it makes you so proud to be one whole year older. I think it's fair to say I've reached the age when having a birthday just means getting older. And no, not necessarily wiser. And not necessarily happy with what you've achieved either. Oh, and not qualifying for a Young Persons Railcard. It's the beginning of the end I tell you.
But what better excuse to make sweet little nibbles hey? I'd like to credit Apple and Spice for those lovely chewy peanut butter cookies and Stash Avalanche for the lush pecan shortbread squares. I hope they go down well in the office, I like to keep up this reputation that I can indeed bake!
I guess I can try and preserve that reputation by doing some quality control at home. Unfortunately, these guys below didn't pass the test. I added too much chocolate powder and it made them all dry instead of nice and gooey. And they might have had a bit too long in the oven too, oops. Shame.
But birthdays also mean enjoying a cake bought by a loved one. You can't beat that.
