We started with pancakes!! This is M, the birthday girl. Traditionally in our house, the birthday person chooses what they want for breakfast. The whole pile wasnt just for her though!
I made a batch of vanilla cupcakes for our picnic at the zoo.
This is K, she is 7 & seems to be enjoying her cupcake!
& Miss L-R, the baby of the family. She seems to be inhaling her cake!
For M's birthday cake, I made her a lemon sponge cake, with lemon curd filling & lemon buttercream. To be honest, it was a bit too lemony, so I wont be doing the lemon cure filling next time. The buttercream was delish, unfortunately though, due to the heat, it wouldnt whisk up properly, resulting in a rather messy cake.
All in all, it was (in M's words) "the best birthday ever!!"
How am I Mum to a 9year old. Feels like only 5 minutes ago when she was born!!
