Well I suppose it's to be expected when you go and have four children! I have to say that I don't enjoy the huge amount of kitchen activity when you organise a party. Give me ready made cupcakes any day! But I do love to decorate these little cakes. Ohhh yes I do! I stole this idea from a magazine I found while browsing in a bookshop one day. And no I didn't buy it! So naughty I know.
Anyway it was No.3's turn to have a celebration on Friday. She has now turned the ripe age of six. Katie came to me a couple of weeks ago and announced that she had finally decided on her cake idea. A garage! Yep one of those ones with levels of car parks and petrol pumps!! My dear little girl who wears pink, loves tutus, plaits in her hair, and is very girly girly. Well what could I say but... Yes of course I'll make you one lovey.
Well I made her the garage... but I girlyfied it! Is that a word? Well anyway I made it all pink and purple and it was the prettiest garage you ever did see. Check it out...
Apparently she drives the pink car. See I told you! She's really is all girl.
The ramps were not for the fainthearted I must say! Not what you want to learn to do hill starts on. Thank goodness for automatics I say! And for Daddies who understand the stress of making icing ramps and alleviating a crisis by coming to the rescue with ice block stick supports that mean our little girl can safely drive her little pink icing car up her icing ramps without fear of the icing folding around her and swallowing her up. Phew!!
And here she is blowing out all six candles. Happy Birthday dear little Katie!
Parties are fun aren't they? And guess what?? I get to do it all again in less than two weeks!!! Good grief, our baby planning wasn't the best at times. Never mind, after the next one that's all of the girls done for the year.
Sorry if I haven't been to visit you lately or even emailed you. I've been rather bloggy slack of late I'm afraid. You see I have a huge project underway and it's taking up all of my time and thinking space. It's not of the craft variety but it's too early to share it with you. Please forgive me for leaving you in suspense like this. I try and catch up with your blog posts but I'm not getting through all of them. But rest assure I'm still here, still tidying up, still doing the washing and all that boring stuff. Till next time, love to you all xxxx
