A good friend of my turned 30 last week and we celebrated with dinner at Bel Mondo at The Rocks. It was such a lovely place and the service and food was incredible. My main meal was soooo good, the gnocchi was absolutely amazing, it was like eating fluffy creamy balls of potato that had just been pan fried to perfection. They were solid, but just melted in your mouth. It’s not usual for me to rave more about the main meal than the dessert but in this case although it came very, very close, the main meal won me over. (Dessert was amazing by the way, warm oozy chocolate fondant and creamy panna cotta – me and the boyfriend went halfsies)

The birthday girl is very much into travelling and is currently doing lots of research in African and South American adventures. She has lots of plans, the first one being to win the lotto. And I think she actually has a better chance at it than me (she occasionally buys a ticket and I never do).

So I thought a travel theme would be most appropriate for this occasion, I hope it will bring her some ‘travel luck’ 🙂

Travel themed cupcake tower… can you guess all the flags? Even though I made them, I forgot what a lot of them were on the night!

    I love your cake! I saw a similar one at the local show a couple of months ago. I bet it was hard to make, putting that icing on a rounded surface.

    Thanks Rose, covering a round cake is hard… especially since it tapers in at the bottom!

    The Sugar Fairy – Thank you! Oh how exciting that you saw the calendar, would you believe, I have not seen it yet!
