a third birthday party
A wonderful day celebrating with a wonderful little boy.
Such fun and enough cuteness to make you pop!
We partied with 2 monsters, a monkey, a Ninja turtle, a donkey and two rabbits. E was going to be a lion, then a gorilla right up until the day before when he found the Sully monster costume. We played and laughed and drank green jungle juice and ate safari snacks. Cheetah chunks, baboon bogies and twigs proved to be most popular.
E’s birthday cake was a Wonka bar – a lovely joint effort by me as baker/decorator and G cutting out the fondant lettering and making the golden ticket. More on the making of the cake another day but it was a recipe using beetroot, dark chocolate and honey to create a less sugary option for the kids post party food. For the grown ups a lemon curd sponge cake decorated with frosting and blueberries was my usual go to easy-peasy birthday cake option.
”I’ve got a golden ticket Mummy”. All he needs now is a Wonka hat!
