The Curious Affair of the Cake on the Plate



Go on please have some cake. It's Monday morning, the sun is shining, is that a good enough reason? It's Monday morning, the sun is shining and the cake is pink, will that do? Well how about it's my birthday today? Or, it's my birthday today and lots of lovely lady bloggers' birthdays too this week? Or, and this is my final stab, it's Agatha Christie's birthday today and therein perhaps lies the reason behind the similarities between my winter wardrobe and that of dotty old Miss Marple - woolly tights and cardigans are de rigeur don't ya know!
Now will you share my cake?

Happy Birthday Kim!!
I'm not sure that the cup cake will share amongst so many well-wishers, so perhaps you should keep it all to yourself!! You deserve it!
Hope you've had a wonderful day,

Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you....I hope you had a very lovely day. I loved the cake - a whole cake all for me! Yay! As for Miss Marple well don't take the association too far... I'm currently reading the 'Cracked Mirror' and she's not as spry as she once was. Bet she'd have loved the cup cake though..
