The future's bright, it's orange. An orange party for our son Murray's birthday, he's 25.....Chocolate cake tiers, lashings of orange butter cream, chocolate fingers and a tumbling bag of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups pouring down. Orange meringue nests filled with orange cream and orange segments dipped in dark & milk chocolate and popping candy ........ Great fun and yes, everyone got into the spirit of orange fancy dress and the whole place became Dutch for the evening and well into the early hours....
