It was time once again to have the annual birthday party for the kids. At first it seemed like a chore to have two parties in one, but when it’s all over and done with for another whole year, it doesn’t seem quite so bad.
After purchasing a heap of Gruffalo themed party stuff from overseas months ahead of schedule (I’m a serial planner), I was told by miss Scarlett that she no longer wanted a Gruffalo party (or cake) but now wished for a fairy party (and cake) instead. I initially tried to ignore her requests and thought she may changer her mind again, but her fascination with fairy things only intensified and I soon realised it was inevitable. Xavier kindly agreed to be the recipient of the planned Gruffalo cake (once he got over his fear of the Gruffalo after a traumatic live performance).
My fear of the fairy cake was allayed once I began doing some homework on YouTube as I found so many great tutorials about making fondant figurines. Although I hate to admit it, I really enjoyed making them. It became my secret night time hobby once I realised early on that it was useless trying to make them while the children were awake – helping equated to them eating the fondant.
So… here are the daycare cupcakes, birthday cakes, party cakes and people of the past two weeks.
Now. What to make next year?
