Birthday Preparations

It’s N’s birthday tomorrow, so the last couple of days I’ve been sorting bits out.  With the snow, the plans to meet up with friends at soft play isn’t going to happen so we’ll be postponing that.  He’ll also have a couple of presents later on from family members due to none of us wanting to travel in the snow.

Luckily he’s still young enough to know no difference, but it sounds like this weekend has been a busy one with postponed birthday parties due to snow for many people.

Last night I wrapped presents; I forgot to take them upstairs so he found them this morning.  Relief when he gave them to me thinking they were for someone else!

And today I made his cake. It was from Rachel Allen’s Cake book – normal sponge with chocolate buttercream icing.  I didn’t have small enough nozzle for my piping bag to do fancy stuff, so used a sandwich bag.

Think I went a bit over the top, but you can never have too much swirly patterns in my view!

Hopefully he’ll like it…we might be eating cake for a while (so much for me being really good on my diet) as we won’t be giving out to his friends.
