Hard to believe that it's been 8 years since this ragazzo carino's madre and I were whispering to each other at a playgroup that we think we're pregnant! Little did we realise that we'd be exchanging baby clothes (her first-born was a girl, mine a boy and vice-versa for our number two), going through completely different pregnancies this time round, betting on who'll have the baby first (our children were born 9 days apart), ranting about our confinement ladies during the 1 month and subsequently lots of time together comparing notes about our children. They're all "grown" now and sadly, we hardly get the kids together anymore. Everyone's just occupied with one thing or another. Nonetheless, the affection we have for each other is still there and these children are like your own. So, baking and decorating this cake was very much like it was for one of my own. The 2.2kg Rich Chocolate cake was soccer-themed featuring the young man and his best mates in the team.
