The one where we celebrated a birthday!

This weekend saw my lovely Miss K celebrating her 8th birthday. It was a manic weekend! She had 2 friends come for tea after school on Friday, then a family party on Saturday (which, to be honest, was very overwhelming for her, even though it was all people she knew well. She spent most of it in my bedroom playing on her guitar. This autism thing is so hard to predict, some things she copes so well with, others not so much) then yesterday we went to the zoo, which was fun but blooming freezing! Such a busy weekend, it was definitely hard work getting myself & the girls out of bed this morning & off to school in time.

Miss K is currently loving Lala Loopsy dolls, so that was the theme of her cake. It was a 2 layer Marble cake, with pink frosting. The buttons & flowers were made from white fondant, & the finishing touch was a Lala Loopsy doll (with 2 little friends) sitting on top.

Apologies for the poor photo, I have to admit I had a 'mare with making this, & so this final cake was made on Sat morning & finished about 10 minutes before the guests arrived! I had to snap a quick Iphone photo whilst I had the chance!
The birthday girl loved the cake, which made the stress worthwhile! In fact it was in her words 'the best birthday ever!'
