Yesterday was the day when my littlest turned three.
Normally I bake enough to feed a small army and then a small army turn up and eat everything. This year, we have not had the troops around, so I have been a little more restrained.
This is a first..............cake pops.
I discovered them on Suzanne's lovely blog Crea in the City, and thought I'd give them a whirl.
I love to bake, and what I lack in talent I make up for in enthusiasm! I followed some great instructions online and was doing well until it got to the part where I had my freshly coated cake pop, white chocolate dripping everywhere, thinking, 'so where am I going to put this to set'. Hubby was making all sorts of
useless useful suggestions ('What you need is some polystyrene') and in the end they ended up sitting in a couple of bananas and a bagel until I could find something more elegant and fitting for the occasion.
|Can you guess what it is yet?|
Much excitement to discover a mystery present in the morning...........what could it be?
One sleepy-faced, pyjama-ed three year old
A little more wide-awake..........cake and tractors the way to man's heart!
Our celebrations don't end here, we have a family day out at the zoo tomorrow and then a big family lunch to toast my Dad's 80th on Sunday.
Thankyou for all you get well wishes, I think we got off very lightly and I reckon I will be able to deliver an action packed weekend yet..........not sure how tired I'll be on Monday though!
I was reading Emily's post from Unravelled a couple of days ago, and she was referring to the lovely sunset she had been looking at, it was quite poignant I thought, as I noticed the strange light and went outside to see a beautiful coloured sky with a huge rainbow.
Its a big old world, but we are all under the same sky.
