Father's Day and a Birthday

Every Father's Day weekend we also celebrate my eldest's child's birthday. In the morning their dad got his gifts from the school's fathers day stall. He was also doing the bbq at his parents for the big get together we always have. The europeans sure love to have a big feast but it makes for lots of fun and smiles.

I digress, Mia turned 7 and I decided to make that cake (from the previous post). She also helped. Most of it came together really nicely except the rocky road filling. We followed the instructions but I didn't think that the warm melted chocolate would also melt the marshmallows. So we ended up with gooey sticky chocolate with pistachio bits. Still we went with it.

I had baked two packets of White Wings Rich Chocolate cake because sometimes speedy is my middle name. Which turned out just as well since we also went to church for a bit in the evening. We came home a bit tired but she still wanted to stay up and help me with her cake. She said "Isn't it wierd that I'm making my own cake?" I laughed and said "Yeah, but it's fun."

It still tasted pretty good. On top there are broken pieces of the Cadbury's Raspberry Clinkers Marshmallows Creations and I didn't make the mashmallows that are suppose to go on top. I cut up some strawberries and bought some decorations for it. The princess bunting was a cake topper packet from Woolworths along with Happy Birthday letter candles I also got a number 7 sparkler for special effects.

The kids had a great time at the in-laws and we were so pooped by the end of the day. I had a shower and cut up some fabric. It was the perfect way to end the day. I hope you all had a great day too.
