Birthday cakes in our house are long thought about creations that the birthday child gets to choose.
Last year’s cake had a long story behind it. It was a wonderful creation produced by a lovely friend. This year it was going to be hard to beat it, so I didn’t even try, I just let my daughter decorate her cake herself. She did a wonderful job and the end result was fantastic.
We had bought some food colouring pens that provided the initial idea. We made a chocolate cake and iced it with a plain ready roll icing. The rest was up to her…
She was so careful and creative. It was a wonderful way to involve her in the party preparations and the other children have already requested a decorate- your-own cake for their next birthday!
She also made some thank you party biscuits to give out at the end of the party.
It was a great day and a great way to celebrate a 10th birthday!
