Like a princess, my Mike has two birthdays. One on the actual day and one on the weekend.
On the Friday [his actual birth date] we ended up having a meal with our two friends, Fiona and Pete, at his favourite restaurant on the curry mile ; Al Nawaaz. I enjoy eating out at curry places as I find I have more choice of foods to try. We ended up sharing a gorgeous chicken balti and pilau rice. We then headed back to Fiona and Petes for an easy evening of board games and drinks. We all didn’t want a heavy night as we were saving ourselves for the barbecue birthday bonanza the next day!
We ended up playing the game, Cranium, but as always, it was girls vs boys so the night became quite competitive!
The next day was Mike’s Barbecue Bonanza and we were so lucky with the weather as it was glorious! It was nice to just lay about in the sunshine with friends and eat amazing barbecue foods.
As a good girlfriend, my aim in life is usually to embarrass Mike whenever I get given the chance, as he’s easily embarrassed! So for his birthday, instead of making him a standard boring birthing cake, I made him some amazing gluten free chocolate cupcakes instead..
… with his beautiful mug on! If you fancy making your own gluten free chocolate cupcakes for yourself or a special occasion – click here – for the recipe and info on where to buy the photo cupcake toppers.
