Our own Little Miss turned 7 on Monday and happily traded a party for a weekend of treats. She enjoyed her ice-creams, meals at her favourite joints and a bake-and-decorate session with mum. She wanted to give away cupcakes to her classmates and chose her favourite vanilla cake with chocolate chips. We had faces of her classmates made out of fondant with Little Miss designing and deciding on all colours used on those cupcakes. I must say that they turned out really pretty. She enjoyed the baking part but could only sit for 1 hour rolling and cutting fondant. She realised how much she had to do and so little was completed after the hour! Before she went to bed (with only 25 cupcakes covered, not adorned), she gave me a hug and said, "Mum, I hope you don't have to stay up too late (again) to finish this for me".
Though no party, I still baked her favourite chocolate cake in a mini pan. This finished cake weighed only 400gms and each of us had a quarter of her dress. She likes fairies and flowers. Put them together and we have a Flower Fairy. She loved it and was especially pleased that she was allowed to eat her head and body!
