Happy 5th Birthday to the Chook Shed

I can't believe that the Chook Shed has been around for 5 years.  Chooky always likes to throw a party to celebrate and it seems that I make a cake some years......even if Chooky never gets to eat it.

Last week I received an SMS from the hostess herself asking if Mick was going to bake a cake.  This was before I had shared Mick's first ever baking experience.

Some men spend time in the kitchen whipping up a storm.  Others don't.  Their talents lie elsewhere, and I'm glad of Mick's many other talents.  Mind you, he certainly can cook a nice dinner and is always very hands on with making preserves.

However, never one to pass up a challenge, he made his first cake.  A "Boiled Jaffa Cake".

Juicing the orange.

Mixing, mixing.

The finished product.  Maybe he made the icing and I spackled it on.

He was looking rather pleased with himself.

Yummo! It tasted rather good.

Happy Birthday Chook Shed.
