Last June, Eoin’s family surprised their mum and dad at Gatwick airport as they were trying to find their gate number in the departure lounge! They were on their way to Rome to celebrate their Ruby wedding anniversary, but little did they know we were all coming too! I think it was a good surprise!
We had such a great time, and we got to spend a lot of time with Eoin’s sister who is studying out there at the moment. We also got to meet the Late Father, Bishop Javier Echevarria – it was such a special moment, especially as he passed away in December last year.
I remember asking Benedict what he wanted for his 3rd birthday cake a few weeks before his actual birthday last July, and he replied, very definitely: “A Noah’s Ark cake…” I thought he was bound to forget that idea by the time his birthday came round, but its been proven – children are like elephants… they will never forget!
But Eoin likes a challenge!! And he really doesn’t give up easily… He did such an incredible job with this cake and has really set the bar high for future birthday cakes!
Benedict’s face was a picture when he first saw it, he was really overwhelmed I think.
A week later, it was back to baking again for Rose’s 1st birthday cake. I absolutely love making the cakes but I’m so messy at the design and decorating bit, whereas Eoin has a real patience with it, so he decorates them! He did an awesome “cow jumping over the moon” for Rose’s first cake:
Its getting close to nearly a year since I last posted! I think with everything going on, my blog has taken a back seat. I remembered it yesterday and started having a look at past posts and it brought back so many wonderful memories, so I’m determined to keep it up!
Among birthdays, holidays and Christmas, a lot has happened so the next few posts are a little catch up…
