My Birthday Cake Disaster
This is what my 4 year old wanted to have for her birthday cake. We headed down to the shops to find a wee baby doll but could not find any so we decided on a sweet little hedgehog who she named Hedgie. She chose to have her party at my friends restaurant. She could chose 3 friends plus her sister and 2 friends stayed the night. It was such a lovely feeling heading out for dinner just with the girls leaving my 2 youngest at home with their dad.
Of course I was excited about going out for dinner because all I had to worry about was the birthday cake. As usual I left it to the last minute and nothing was going to plan. The icing was a disaster and one whole side of the cake collapsed. I kept asking her "Are you sure you want a cake, do you really need one....." "Yes Mum, Keep going!" Many times I wanting to throw it in the bin. And it then dawned at me with a few minutes to spare. "How about a couch, would you like that one" "Yes Mum" all excited. So I grabbed the only packet of lollies I had, chocolate fish, marshmallows and Jaffa's and started the creation.
I'm proud to say this was the end result!
So let that be a lesson to you all, don't give up hope even when you think there is absolutely no solution. Not the best cake I've done but I am so surprised how it turned out and the most important thing my daughter loved it!
These were the party favours, light up pens with present surprise eggs.
And this was her party last year. A little bit more effort was put into this one!
