Another Summer Birthday Picnic

IMG_0468 (1)

This year we decided to do a joint birthday party for Benedict’s 5th birthday and Rose’s 3rd. We went back to the same place we had a picnic for Benedict’s first birthday… little did we know we’d be returning four years later as a family of five and a proper children’s birthday party in toe. Benedict has been talking about his ‘number 5 birthday party’ since last October, so not much pressure then!

We really could not have had a better day though.  It took a lot of planning but it was so worth it. We had sports day races, pin the tail on the donkey, fajita wraps, a treasure chest birthday cake, a scavenger hunt, and some very excited children!

Eoin spent the night before the party putting together the treasure chest cake. Headphones in and listening to dance music… he was definitely in the zone!

Belated Birthdays

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:
