Hi all, just had to share. I've just had a day of preparing for DD1's birthday party tomorrow. Baked & decorated a chocolate cake and a batch of cupcakes, never even licked my fingers. Phew. Got harder as I was trimming the cake to shape and decorating it! Hope you like the picture!

Now tomorrow, I will allow myself a small piece of cake, at least it's a PV day so I can snack on veggies.

Have a good weekend!

thank you everyone. Well I had one plain cupcake (with raisins in), and a few hula hoops... Doesn't seem to have done too much damage :)

As for the cake: it's really simple - bake a round cake (10in) cut into two halves and sandwich the two together & stand on end - I had to trim a bit off the bottom to make it stand. Then ice and decorate with chocolate fingers and maltesers.
This is a good site for party cakes, where I found this design:
Themed Cakes | Birthday Cakes | FamilyFun

Of course they did! Also, 6 year-olds still need remarkably little entertaining if allowed to play in the Garden! We only played a couple of the things I had lined up for them... Plus a good treasure hunt that sent them from one end of the garden to the other and back again many times over.
