|Ali's 39th birthday in 1994|
The past couple of years recalled Ali's birthdays in India. Most of her birthdays, however were spent at home, and Ali had the 'usual' birthday cake - which I made from the only recipe for cakes Ali knew. It was a simple victoria sponge, which would either be plain (like the one above) or chocolate. For several years we had a faulty oven which didn't close properly, so the sponges rose on one side and not the other. By matching up the uneven sides the surface ended up being flat!
Today would have been Ali's 63rd birthday.
