Birthday Season

November is birthday month for us. Both boys were born in November, and thanks to chance and mothers' group (formed from mothers with babies born around the same time) we also have a few friends and relatives with November birthdays. This year we will have a combined birthday party for the boys, which compresses the preparation workload in all areas but one, the need for two cakes!

For Big Bro's first and second birthdays, I chose cakes that reflected his interests.

We started with the Very Hungry Caterpillar...

And his favourite foods...

The next year, it was about trains. Of course.

I had been unwell in the weeks leading up to the party, and so we had missed all the other two year old parties. I had thought my train cake was moderately original (apart from knowing that there is one featured in the Women's Weekly Cookbook) until hearing the discussion at our party between the other mothers of two year old boys about their own train creations!!

As for this year's creations... all will be revealed soon!

In the meantime, should you be looking for more cake inspiration, check out ilipilli's masterpieces here and here!

Thanks! I enjoy it! (Say I, waiting for Big Bro's cake to cool down enough to be put away before I can go to bed!)
