Apologies for the tardiness on the blog front… life is so crazy at the moment.
It’s funny how everyone was saying to me how much easier my life would get this year (Lily starting school, Ava in 4 yr old kinder and Molly in 3 yr old kinder), but at the moment i feel like we spend all day getting in and out of the car!!!!
I couldn’t believe it when I looked at my calendar last week and realised that Ava’s birthday was coming up this week…yikes!
Last year when I was making Lily’s birthday cake i asked Ava what sort of cake she would like and she told me a blue penguin cake
I wasn’t really keen on penguins (black fondant and I are not friends…), but every time after that when I asked her she would always she that she wanted a penguin cake.
I don’t know why I was so scared to make the penguins because when I eventually settled down to make them, they were surprisingly easy
I made some simple cupcake toppers for the party, using the ruffle flower technique, a white circle and my new A cutter (I bought an alphabet set last week)
So… that’s Ava’s party cake sorted… but then, of course she needs a cake on her actual birthday (arghhh!). I’ve decided to attempt this lolly/icecream cake that I saved a picture of a while ago by English Cake Lady on Cakecentral.com
Here are the sweets that I’ve made so far (will add the lollipop sticks when I’m assembling the cake)
Seriously… birthdays are getting to be WAY too much work!!!!!! I think I need to plan things so that the party/birthday/kinder day falls on the same day
I’m going to make some cupcakes and the coloured flowers above will sit on top (I’ll add some edible pearls in the centre…if I can be bothered!)
So… this is my drying lid at the moment
