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!
the dress in progress and the dress in use!
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!
