We had Zoe’s birthday party on Saturday – a jump and swim party. I baked the whole of Friday afternoon – my first time attempting a tiered cake covered with fondat, so as you can imagine I was quite nervous about this cake.
I do think the party was a resounding success, kids cried when their parents picked them up and they were so busy playing that most of the eats and drinks were left over.
So here are some photo’s
The table with all the eats, I made the tiered cake – vanilla with caramel condensed milk in betweem , red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing, caramel condensed milk and rice krispies and sugar cookies. The rest were just normal sweeties and chips.
The cake after the hordes fed on it, my heart broke to see my hard work being destroyed like that
The jumping castle – 5m’s high sliding into the swimming pool
The patio with the Chinese lanterns and the draped fabric
The cake after Zoe decorated it
The original cake after I decorated it – it was very hard to allow Zoe free reign on the cake after I finished but I realised that it is her cake and her party and I can’t allow my perfectionism to stand in the way of her joy in decorating her own cake
And now thankfully it is over for another year and Zoe has ordered the exact same party for next year.
Have a wonderful week – I have training for 2 days.
