party time. excellent.

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?

  1. Thanks Meli – I was pretty happy with the outcome. Now I'm trying to think of excuses to make more… My mum's birthday is coming up, or perhaps a Father's Day cake (with the kids' help) is a good idea?
