So yesterday was my mum's birthday and she really wanted to go to Bella Italia so all of the family went out for a meal. You wouldn't believe my mum was over 50 (she will kill me if I say her age) when I turned up at the restaurant and she looked like this... If you follow me on twitter you will see my mum insisted on buying this headband from the 'Pretty Alice' children's yes children's accessory range from Boots, for anyone who know's me you will know this is where I get my craziness from.

King Prawn with Chilli, Tomato and Parmasan Spaghetti (I've just noticed how dirty the side of the plate looks! Ew)

Spaghetti Bolognese (another dirty plate...?)

I hadn't been to Bella Italia for a while and I must say I was very impressed with the service and the food, it was beautifully cooked. My mum was a tad embarrassed when they bought out a lemon cake with a candle singing Happy Birthday - they had overheard our conversation and arranged it as we never actually told them about her birthday! Bravo Bella Italia. We then finished with a Bella Bellini and some more drinks. Yum yum!

Now for the cake...

My friend from work also make's personalised cakes. As my mum is a keen crafter/sewer and other bits like that I asked George to make this and it turned out amazing! If anyone is local to Leicester and needs a personalised cake I would definitely recommend George as she puts so much thought into designing a perfect cake and also making this for you, the cake is also delicious and surprisingly not sickly so if you want a cake for whatever reason check out her facebook page here.
