JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

The best tasting birthday cake EVER!

We were invited to a birthday BBQ for the sister of my friend at Kuranda on Saturday.  We had a couple of jobs to do in Cairns so we did them first.  We also headed to Irelands Cairns...the Holden dealership.....where our name was in the draw to win a new car.  Everyone who had purchased a new or secondhand car in the past couple of months went into the draw.  Three hundred people turned up for the draw as you had to be there to win.  No, we didn't win but hey, great odds!
We had a delicious BBQ lunch with our friends and their family and as usual, the conversation flowed.  After lunch the birthday cake was brought out.  What a cake!  Chocolate Mud Cake with cigars of chocolate and Chocolate Eclairs and glazed with Chocolate Ganache!  A chocolate lovers dream cake and soooo delicious.  I am definitely heading to the Cheesecake Shop next time I'm in Cairns!
