Blowing out the candles

{cakes made with love}
As a kid birthday's were always something I looked forward to. A beautiful cake made by my Mum with love. From a telephone cake to hello kitty and everything in between, my Mum definitely had her work cut out for her come my birthday. Gifts usually consisted of Barbie's, and  birthday's were fun. This year it's depressing. Turning 25... being half way to 50... honestly where has the time gone?
