family fun time

what an absolutely insane couple of weeks we have had! october is always a crazy busy time of year for us full of birthdays and activities and all that baking and organising that goes with it. not only do rod and i both have our birthday’s in october (thanks for Photoshop mum and dad) but so does my grandmother and a couple of our friends too… october has also brought with it the nice sunny weather (well, a few days of it at least) over here on the west side of the country, but not so much for those on the east coast who are unfortunately dealing with some tragic bush fires – our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected! when you see that sort of thing happening to people in your own country it makes you stop and focus on everything you have and remember just how lucky you are.

so, without further ado, here is a little recap of the arnold family’s october:

IMG_2410^^don’t mind if i do… i could gladly eat left over salted caramel and vanilla bean layer cake for breakfast everyday. i made this one for nanna’s birthday and you can find the recipe here. be warned it is very sweet. might try a less sweet icing mixture next time^^
