yet another birthday cake {blogtoberfest day 11}

Do you ever have days where you have big plans to get a lot done, and then end up feeling like a cat chasing it’s tail and getting nowhere? Today was like that for me. I went to a workshop this morning about science for little people, as our little Bear is just a wee bit of a mini-me-science-nerd, then came home and got busy sewing. I’m just about to get back into it for the #saturdaynightcraftalong, and then I realised, I haven’t blogged today!!

For Butterfly’s birthday (FOUR?? Silly me must have blinked!), we talked about cakes, for a week. Her original idea was a castle, with horses and a Peppa Pig princess fairies. When I suggested we scale it back a bit, she said she wanted to help me make it. So the night before, I whipped up a chocolate cake (her chosen flavour), and then once the baby went down for a nap after an exciting morning of Big Sister Birthdaying, Butterfly & I set ourselves up and got busy – I mixed, coloured (under direction) and spread (again, under direction) the buttercream icing, and then she went to town with the sprinkles.

 

One more event to go and we can call birthday season 2014 complete. Not that I’m counting down or anything…
