Princess Castle Cake – Children’s birthday cake.

princess cake blog cake 2 blogPrincess Castle Cake – I recently made this cake. You need cup style ice cream cones and traditional ice cream cones. Make one large butter cake and one smaller butter cake. Make lots of soft pink butter icing – just soft icing sugar mixed with butter and pink food extracts colouring. Make a small bowl of soft green butter icing – soft icing sugar mixed with butter and green food extracts colouring. Silver balls are soft pearls cake decorations from the supermarket. Children’s toy figurines to place on top – I used lego ones. Little flags from a children’s party cake shop.

A Lone Seagull – “I WANDERED lonely as a cloud” William Wordsworth

“I WANDERED lonely as a cloud” William Wordsworth

I WANDERED lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay: 10
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed–and gazed–but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood, 20
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.
1804.
