I have had a lovely weekend in the Lake District celebrating my friend Sarah's 30th birthday. After lots of champagne we walked off the hangovers and even saw some sunshine! For Sarah's birthday cake I baked a chocolate sponge cake filled with chocolate buttercream and covered with white chocolate ganache. I took it to the pub and we all had a piece for dessert – just before the 'birthday shots' (I am now an amaretto liqueur convert!). Good times!
