On the 4th August I celebrated my 23rd birthday, ah I am slowly starting to feel older now (not saying anyone older than me is old) but yeah you know how it feels, another year has flown by in a flash. I had such a lovely birthday, well a birthday weekend as we never just celebrate on the actual date anymore do we? I was truly spoilt and I was so grateful to all friends and family for their gifts and surprises, I literally have some amazing people in my life at the moment.
Of course, no birthday is complete without a cake right? But I had 3 this year, I know greedy Rachel or what? One my parents brought which was a cute Me to You Bear, then a fresh cream and strawberry vanilla sponge that my uncle backed and the third I was pleasantly surprised on the Friday before my birthday to have received a cake from the lovely people from Baker Days*.
One Direction themed cake, what girl doesn't love cake and One Direction right? I wasn't sure which sponge I would get as I forgot to select that, so when I cut into the cake and found out it was chocolate I was in heaven.
