Raspberry and Amaretti Birthday Cake

As I’ve mentioned before, today is my 22nd birthday. In addition to the box of presents Katherine bought/made/cooked for me, she baked a rather spiffing birthday cake. However, since it’s my birthday and the recipe is pinched from here, I shan’t be doing a full post – merely making you all a little green. Envy my cake, for it is delicious!

Cost: Though this cake probably isn’t as cost effective as some that I have made, it is still surprisingly cheap. Raspberries are, at this time of year, exceedingly inexpensive – usually around £1 a punnet – and the rest of the ingredients can be found at reasonable prices if one shops around. I have to admit that Katherine didn’t make her own amaretti, but the cake still came in at around £3.50.
