The Life of Riley

Today I completed my birthday gift for my brother in law and took it round to him. He liked his birthday surprise very much.
My sister had secretly lent me photos of his treasured car, a cream and silver Riley, so that I could easily copy the outline to make a template of it - and I was very pleased with the result - and very thankful that I had a picture to copy from, as I am not that great at drawing cars - especially not out of icing!
A Luci chocolate and ginger cake with chocolate buttercream filling.Blue icing for the sky, green for the hills and green and orangey brown for the hedgerows.
My brother in law graciously shared it with us all.
Yummy,delicious,very nice said the grown ups.
Can we have some more? asked the children.
