Recipe for a 12th Birthday

Begin the day with White Hot Chocolate, from The Barefoot Contesssa's recipe, as won by the Birthday Boy in Sherri B's competition this summer. Wow! This possibly contains enough calories and delight for the day...
But... Add light lunch with carrot cake and 12 candles.Introduce six more boys, aged between 11 and 13, and take to Laser Game, Toulouse.
Return home and light bonfire.
Cook and eat sausages, and provide little light-gel sticks, intended for garden lighting, but much more useful as Light Sabres if you are 11 - 13.
Play night-time table tennis (optional).
Add fireworks.
Introduce treacle tart, warm from the oven.
Toast marshmallows over embers.
Go to bed happy. Now, get ready for Christmas!
