Hubby, his dad and brother attended the dawn ceremony in Brisbane and later we had a BBQ lunch and toasted the diggers. Yesterday Hubby and I had a few jobs to do in the city so we returned to the Shrine of Remembrance and it was nice to get to read some of the notes left with the wreaths.
The that night we celebrated a friends birthday and I made him a Chocolate Silk Cake which is not for the faint hearted. It is a chocolate almond cake with a chocolate mouse filling covered in chocolate ganache. It is the kind of cake to be enjoyed as a small slice with a good coffee. I am from New Zealand and Hubby is from Australia and our friends girlfriend is Turkish so we really did have the full ANZAC contingent in attendance.
