Another special celebration for our house – lovely Millie was 9 last week and therefore has to be Cake of the Week.
Millie is truly lovely – she is gentle, grown-up, fun and innocent all at once. She mixes so well with her friends and we are so proud of her. She tries hard at everything she does and I know we are biased but she is beautiful too!
Some of my most challenging cakes have been Millie’s birthday cakes – Her first birthday cake was a 3 tier castle cake (I’ll be honest – I just felt like learning how to do a castle cake). We have had Snow White cakes (with all 7 dwarves), Balamory & Hannah Montana.
This year, we had our usual chat about which cake she would like (with me silently panicking about how I would fit one in) and after a short foray into the world of Moshi Monsters, she decided leave it to me. I tried to do something that shows her being a little bit more grown up but still child-friendly. Millie has inherited my love of Cath Kidston, so that was it.
The birthday party was a lot smaller this year (I have been saying every year that this is the last year of parties) and was held at Pizza Hut. I knew that I was not going to want to cut the cake so decided on a cupcake for each girl to take away. Just to make life that little bit more difficult, I settled on personalising them with the girl’s initials (I finished them with half an hour to go before picking the girls up from school)
Here is the birthday girl (on the left) with her best friend from school and my best friend’s 7YO – aren’t they all beauties?
As usual, the link is up for you to share your Cake of the Week – Are there any other Cath Kidston cakes out there too?
