Super powered birthdays

"You ought to write 'A Happy Birthday' on it."

"That was what I wanted to ask you," said Pooh. "Because my spelling is Wobbly. It's good spelling but it Wobbles, and the letters get in the wrong places. Would you write 'A Happy Birthday' on it for me?"
- Winnie-the-Pooh by A. A. Milne

It was J's birthday yesterday. After going out for dinner with a couple of his friends (we went Indian to Satya which has several vegetarian and vegan options) we naturally had to have birthday cake. After all, no birthday is complete without cake.

The cake is the carrot cake from The Damn Tasty Vegan Baking Guide (I love that book) with vegan coconut and cream cheese frosting and sliced bananas through the centre, more frosting on the sides and some store-bought coloured icing (good old Milly's to the rescue) for the Superman logo and top of the cake (I couldn't face making my own...too much icing to fiddle around with).

As you can see, J couldn't bear to cut through the Superman symbol!!
