95th Birthday (Let Them Eat) Cake Friday

Wednesday was Granddad's 95th Birthday. We celebrated with a sponge cake with strawberry jam and fresh whipped cream filling, and icing sugar sprinkled on top.

Can you spot my obvious mistake?
Hint: The numbers
No, well, I didn't notice either until some smug person pointed it out.  (I am dyslexic MOTHER, laughing at me DOES NOT HELP).
So Grandad came home from the rehab hospital on Monday.  I won't go into the ins and outs of it all, but this is what he desperately wanted, though we are not sure that this situation will continue for long.

Grandad amused himself by chasing the screaming hordes around the lounge room on his mobile chair.

Then the screaming hordes got hold of walking sticks and attempted a coup, which was swiftly thwarted by the evil Mummy&Daddy Overlords.  We went home soon after.

Oh bless - what a lovely traditional cake for your Grandad. And 'chaseys' with an electric chair sounds like quite the fun!

Happy Birthday Granddad. I can't take the cow image from my head. It looks like the cow is part of the cake;-).
