Sprat is 6!!
My baby boy turned 6 today. 6. Wow. I hate it that time seems to go so fast, but love watching him grow and change. I still relive each child's labour on their given birthday and marvel at how much they have grown from that tiny squashed newborn they started as.
We made a decision a while back not to do big birthday parties for the children each year. Its way too much work and my personal opinion is it seems quite excessive each year with 3 children to organise parties for. Instead we'll celebrate as a family, doing a special activity together. Of course we will celebrate milestone birthdays with a big bash, and the next one will be Danger Mouse turning 5 next year.
Sprat decided he wanted to go up the Sky Tower for his birthday this year. The hubby and I had to face a few fears, both of us hating tall buildings.
It was a wonderful day spent together, visiting family, playing with new toys and eating cake. He wanted a yellow Bumblebee Transformer cake. I have developed a love hate relationship with fondant. Granted I rushed this cake, not allowing things to dry properly before adding additional layers and I hope one day I will learn how to produce beautifully smooth fondant. Still, I have one VERY happy 6 year old who thinks his mum's cakes are the best.
I found my cake inspiration here. She gives great instructions on how she decorated it. I should of read them, as they would of helped haha. Still, a great cake!
