This is my little brother. Who really isn’t very little anymore. Yes, he is a poser. He turns 22 on the 28th of June and yet again I won’t be home to celebrate his birthday with him. I’m hoping this post transcends the miles that separate me from home.
We’ve always been close growing up but I think in the last 5 years we have bonded even more than before. I can always rely on him to bring me back to earth, to give me the advice I need to hear or just be a nag. He’s always managed to come across as the older one, intellectually as well as height wise!
Here is a little secret, if you ever meet him, remember to slip in the word ‘smelly’ into the conversation and see the annoyance it causes him.
Ideally I should have dedicated a cheesecake recipe to him as it is his favourite cake but as he has developed a more adventurous palette over the last couple of years, I’m sure he’d appreciate these passion fruit mini cakes!
Happy birthday little bro! Hope the coming year will be as memorable and as exciting as the last year has been. Lots of love big sis x
p.s. These mini cakes are perfect for a tea party or a tea time treat. The mixture of lemon and passion fruit gives the cake a tangy, light texture perfect for the summer.
