As this is my Blog I tend to write mainly about my side of the family, my Parents and Grandparents but that doesn't seem fair as the kids will want to read stories about their family on Papa's side too. So for Flashback Friday this week I would like to share with you papa's Grandparents on his Mothers side.
Unfortunately I never got to meet Papas Grandad Bert as he passed away years before we got together. I have been told he was a lovely man who absolutely adored his wife, Papa's Nan May. May was a wonderful cook and made beautiful cakes and I remember tucking into her delicious meat pies on quite a few occasions. Papa definitely inherited his baking skills from her.
May baked the wedding cake for Papa's parents back in 1969
And then again twenty years later in 1989 she baked an almost identical wedding cake for Papa and I.
I loved the fact that Papas nan made our wedding cake and that is was the same as his Parents. It gave the cake an extra special meaning and was so delicious too.
