Secret Birthday Cookie Box

Yeeeeah. Birthdays. When I hear it's someones birthday all I can think of is the fact that I now have an excuse to bake! WOOP. 

Last minute present? Cookies.

Elegant surprise? A beautiful cake decorated with piped icing.

Girly sleepover party? A big plate of brownies for the group to gorge.

My dad doesn't really believe in birthdays. So he always forgets his and hence we tend to forget it to. :S

Luckily I only found out a day late this year so I was able to whip up one of his favourite treats in time for birthday lunch with granny.

Coconut Macaroons. There is just something about Coconut Macaroons. I can't explain it.

My dad says he spent his first day of wages on a liter of milk and 2 packets of coconut macaroons. Needless to say he had a bit of a feast.

ps. No tables were harmed with glue during the process of making this box... Shhh...
