Let Them Eat Cake

You may, or may not, have noticed there was a distinct lack of cake in any of the photos taken on Emily's birthday. That was because she wanted to have her birthday cake today, because we are going ice skating and for pizza with two of her best friends. We will return here afterwards for cake.

On her actual birthday Emily blew out a candle, twice. One when it was stuck in one of the Japanese gyoza dumplings we had made. And again when it was stuck in a chocolate cupcake that Helen had made for her.


So today we made cake. And decorated cake. It has received the Emily seal of approval, thank goodness.


Emily has a penchant for those little sugar craft figures you can buy. She has been having them on her cakes since she was about three and shows no sign of growing out of them. This year she chose circus characters.


So today I will be accumulating bruises as various body parts connect with the ice. Canadian I may be but there has not been much ice skating going on in my life over the past few years. Cake will be devoured, and Emily will give out various little party favours she has made, including these Fimo phone fobs/zipper pulls that she has created - having learned so many wonderful tricks on how to do this from the amazing Shannon.


Today will be a good day, I do believe.

  5. Have a great time ! Great favours by the fair hand of Emily but good teacher too I think! Just make sure you take a cushion for a soft landing - or fall on top of someone else!

  19. Love Emily's party favours, well done.
    I'd be sitting on the sidelines rather than risking life and limb on the ice rink. Hope everyone had fun.
