I would like to share these awards with

Sunitha and Namitha -

And to share the joy I'm posting a cake which I made for my son's Birthday.  The party theme was space and hence and a space cake.  The rockets and the astronaut are made of sugarpaste and the cake is iced with fresh cream. It is a pineapple cake, moistened with rum and sugar syrup and layered with fresh cream and cherry filling .  The yellow sugar stars are storebought.  I was in such a pathetic state of mind at that time, with a lot of things to take care of,  forgot to put a birthday message with my son's name on the cake which was later done in a haste by my hubs dear just before cutting the cake.  It was his idea to put the message on a flag.  Missed a good click of the cake as well.
