Grandaughter’s First Birthday!

I’ve been busy lately preparing for my grandaughter’s first birthday party!

First there was the cake! I so enjoyed making this!

the two tiers were homemade – Chocolate Fudge Cake with chocolate buttercream and Madeira cake with Rose buttercream!  To cover the cake I used ready made roll out icing and decorated with sweets, sugar paste hearts, flowers and edible glitter.  It tasted gorgeous although it was very rich and sweet so a small slice was an excellent sufficiency!

Charlotte shared the party with my daughter’s friend’s 4 year old and the theme was Super Heroes.  The older children were dressed in capes etc so I made Charlotte a Fairy Costume with Super Baby on the back!

I was exhausted at the end of the week and then there was the actual party with a giant bouncy slide for adults and children! It was difficult, but I managed to have a couple of slides – fab!  Mainly though I left it to the younger people!

So when I look back at these photos I will remember we did have some summer this year after all!
