This year, we went to Greg's parents for a family lunch for 17. My Mum came too. It was an absolutely scorching hot day, high 30's, but luckily their house is air-conditoned :)
For the main meal, we had pork spare ribs, potato salad, green salad and sesame beans, with each family bringing a dish. My mum's potato salad is really good, but no matter what I do, it's never quite as good as hers!

I was asked to bring a cake as it was also the opportunity to celebrate 5 family members' birthdays in January and February. As it turned out, we had 3 desserts!!
I kept it simple, using my dairy free vanilla recipe and the butter frosting. To decorate I used coloured M&Ms representing different aspects of Australia
- Yellow - sun and sand
- Orange - sunset
- Red - sunset and land
- Brown - land
- Green - grass and trees
- Blue - sky and water

It was a really pleasant way to spend the day :)
