Our eldest turns four today and we've been very aware that with the rapid arrival of Alistair this week that birthday celebrations could be a little more subdued than normal. We're having a party for her in a couple of weeks but we wanted to make sure she had a good day today as well.
So last night I baked a couple of sponges (with swirls of "ice blue" sponge through it as well) then spent a few hours decorating the cake for her.
Like every four year old girl in the western world she's obsessed with Frozen, so an olaf cake seemed just within my capabilities. I really enjoyed making it and it was a good distraction from all the other jobs I probably should have been doing!
I was quite pleased with the results and it turned out much better than one I attempted a year or so ago which turned out more like peppa pigs fake tanned, junkie relative, Phillipa pig. I didn't even have to prompt the girls as to who was on this cake which is a good sign!
|My last attempt wasn't great...|
My wife and I were talking last night and it seems mad that just over four years ago there were no children sharing our daily lives.
We feel like a very lucky little family at the moment!
