Party time, cake time

It was my little girls' birthday on Monday, she turned three. Wow. I can remember the day she was born like it was just yesterday, but also, it seems like we have had her forever. She is such a good kid, I love her so much.
I made the cake, got quite neurotic about the whole thing, running all over town looking for the right icing and other stuff, like black food colouring. Who would have thought that if I'd just gone to the Cake Making shop in the first place (instead of wasting time and money in places like Woolworths and Spotlight) I could've got everything I wanted (plus some priceless advice) straight up. Live 'n' learn.
Anyway she loved her cake, just loved it.Seeing this photo made it all worth while. Honestly I was so nervous as I have never made a kids cake before and I didn't want to let her down. I even got my Mum to take over the icing because I was doing such a dodgy job of it. But she absolutely loved it. And that was all that ever mattered. I would love to add more pictures of her just staring at her cake but I won't bore you anymore.

Ruby had a fabulous birthday with heaps of presents, a trip to the park, James cake, and finally a trip to the beach and fish 'n' chips for tea. Brilliant.

WOW!!! Great job on the cake. It is brilliant. No wonder Ruby was so excited to see it.
Which cake shop did you go to?

Happy Birthday sweet Ruby! The cake looks fabulous too, well done! I tried to make a train cake back when the big monster was only small. I wont go into the mesy details but lets just say it was a disaster and I ended up having to pick up a cake at the bakery on the way to the park for his party.

The photo of your daughter is priceless! Well done on the cake decorating! It's the best one I've ever seen (really, I mean it!)
