Birthday cakes


We have been up to our eyes in birthday cakes!

Last Thursday it was Ben's 11th birthday - he is mad keen on WWE wrestling so his cake was a wrestling ring with some of the wrestlers surrounding it. I never thought that I would know who Rey Mysterio, Triple H, Jeff Hardy, The Undertaker, John Cena, The Big Show etc are, but you live and learn don't you??

His favourite wrestler Rey Mysterio was kind enough to hold up one of his championship belts and wish Ben a Happy Birthday!
Marion made a dinosaur cake for the son of one of our friend's - he was 5. She did a great job but then she can remember what dinosaurs really look like!!! Ouch.....she just punched me from her house - around the corner from mine.She also made these little dinosaurs to go on cupcakes.
I have received a little box of goodness from Sue - a 'just because' gift.A 'just because' gift that made me very happy - some chandelier crystals.
Can you see the large one, on top of the bee and how it makes it look like there are two bees? And then some of the smaller, delicate hexagon crystals are on the left side of the box.

Thank you Sue!

The cakes are BRILLIANT! I remeber making "special" cakes for the kids - everything from witches to mermaids, trains and turtles! Ah those were the days - now I am far more likely to be shouting them a drink at the pub!
Look forward to seeing what you make with the crystals one day. I love the way you photographed the box - it looks really lovely - it was a dodgy wood block print - but the paper was so nice ...!

Oh the joys of having boys! Great idea Christina. I never thought I would have a clue who the wrestlers were, amazing the education one receives with male offspring. Well done.
