So by Saturday morning everything was in place, tables were decorated, cookie dough was made, icing was made, aprons, recipe books and pan with cookie cutters in for the goodie bags were decorated. So I had time to go for a run and to have a leisurely breakfast on my own at the Deli. Yes I was on my own – Zoe was with Ouma and Hubby went for a run in Pretoria – absolute bliss!
I think the party was a success – it seems although the girls enjoyed it and let me tell you the cookie recipe is fail proof – small ones, fat ones, flat ones and big ones, they all came out perfectly!
So here are some piccies:
All the girls with their aprons that I’ve made
The table, decorated and the dough and flour is ready for the cookie making
Hard at work, rolling the dough in balls
Some of the finished cookies – excuse the mess in the background – it is choas at a party!
Hard at work decorating the cookies.
The birthday cake – before and after – it was my first time ever icing a cake like that and to me if was a fugly cake but everybody else including the birthday girl was very impressed. At least it tasted fantastic but with two tins of caramel and 500g’s of icing it didn’t have much a choice! Apologies for some of the piccies lying on their sides – can’t fix it after I’ve emailed it.
And now it is over for antother year and I can start planning again in November – goodness knows what I’m going to do next year though!
