A playdate. Three girls. One little brother. Lots of giggling. Morning tea. CAKE!!!
But not just any cake. DIY cake. Crafty cake. Castle Cakes.
Inspired by the birthday cake book that lives on the bookshelf and rarely gets used, Little Miss and I decided that they would make castles. The construction materials were yummy: mini swiss rolls, icing, mini meringues, smarties, mini marshmallows, mini wafer cones, biscuits and icing flowers.
They had a ball! I don’t think any of them ate the cake. But all the lollies got eaten in the end.
Naturally we had to take photos of them all – front and back.
Mr Happy couldn’t be left out so he constructed a motor bike. Or was it a car? I wasn’t sure but he had fun!
The book that inspired these is 30 Minute Kids’ Cakes by Sara Lewis, although ours look nothing like the Rapunzel cake in the book! I can’t find that book on Fishpond any more so here’s a selection of cake books to inspire you.
