Winter themed b-day cake

Well that one was for my dad’s birthday. It was a team work: my mum prepared that tasty cake: well moistened chocolate sponge, lots of berries and peaches plus whipped cream – a win-win combination that always satisfies anyone in my family 🙂 Wooden cake stand was my dad’s work. Mine was only ‘decoration‘ this time 🙂


He is maybe too old for that kind of cake bud was look like he loved it! Photos were taken with old Pentax K10, 15-55mm this time 🙂


I just love that last photo! Doesn’t need any additional description. In my family everything happens in the kitchen ever since: planning, debates, celebrations… maybe that’s why?




  1. Oh, Irena, I just love your family — such cuties and what talent! And the cake, gorgeous! And what’s this with “just the decorations”? They are delightful and adorable! You’re so talented, Irena =) And how wonderful that your family creates together like this — what a blessing! Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful family moment — it made me smile =)

    1. Christina thank you so much for that! I almost cry while reading your words!
      As teenager I wouldn’t agree with you 😉 Now I can’t visit more than once or twice a month as I don’t live very close by, but when I do we always do something – at least cooking/baking if nothing else 🙂

      1. Aww, of course, Irena, just speaking the truth =) And I think we all felt that way as teenagers! But was a wonderful thing to be able to turn the page and have a good relationship with them now. That is very special =)

      2. I guess it is necessary for kids to feel that way. But in another hand it is so nice to have them here – I am so thankful for them! All the best also to you and to your family Christina!!

  2. Happy Birthday to your Dad! What a great collaboration. I love your decorations, you’ve got quite a talent 😀

    1. Thank you Cindy, too king of you!

  3. I love the owls! They are so cute! It’s wonderful that you were able to capture the beauty and warmth of the moment with your family. You’re so right that everything happens in the kitchen. I’ll be re-blogging this one to share for sure!

    1. Anna, thank you for that gesture and nice words, very nice from you! I am glad you like them. I love the owls too. As they are not too complicated I wish to make them again 😉

  4. Reblogged this on love bake create and commented:
    Fridays bring with them a need to slow down, catch your breath and ease into the weekend. What better way to do that than to take a peak at what some other bakers are doing. This week, enjoy a cute birthday cake from Irena&Dots. Gotta love the owls! Enjoy!

  5. […] & Dots: Please tell me even if she only did the decorations, how precious this cake […]

  6. So beautiful. The cake; the family.

    1. Thank you Jocellyn!!!
