Birthday Cakes Galore and a Scrummy Salad

Hello and happy Monday!

I don’t know about you guys, but whenever I am very busy, I tend to eat badly… I don’t bother with salads or much veggies, I eat too much meat and don’t drink enough water. Oh yes, and I eat waaaay too much sweet things… {Blush}

Here’s a recap of some of the cakes I did last week and a scrummy salad to start the week off on a good note:

Go-Kart themed cake {chocolate cake}
Spider-Man themed cake {red velvet cake}
Lawnmower themed cake {chocolate top layer, red velvet bottom layer}
Rugby themed cake with sports balls cupcakes {polka dot vanilla sponge cake, chocolate cupcakes}

And here is a scrummy, quick and easy salad to start the week off on a good note:

{I just realised that I’ve taken the photo before adding the greens… Oh well…}
So, you will need:
Ripe papaya, diced
Herby greens or baby salad leaves
Ginger syrup {I used the syrup from a jar of preserved ginger, straight from the fridge, so it was set and I dolloped a few bits into the salad}
Vanilla pumpkin seeds from Woolies
Feta cheese with black pepper
Olive oil
Red wine vinegar

Toss the leaves together and drizzle with olive oil and red wine vinegar.
Add the papaya and feta cheese, then sprinkle with the pumpkin seeds and finally, add dollops of ginger syrup.

Totally delicious and perfect for a light lunch or enjoy with a tasty piece of fish for dinner. {And vino of course ;)}
