The wheels were suppose to be creatively shaped cupcakes, but a bag of licorice allsorts was too handy.
The 5th birthday party was a joint affair and the other two mums and I made a cake each and we slabbed it together with lots of mascarpone icing and smarties galore! Mmmmm....
And if that wasn't enough, Miss I's had asked for a castle cake so as we had a pre-celebration on the Sunday (I can't make castle cakes mid week) the following day we had this:
I am not sure I triumphed last year's effort. Cake and french bubbles were then followed by fireworks and sparklers which luckily went without a hitch:
And finally cupcakes for Elis' childminder who was also celebrating her birthday:

From the recent parties - which have all been fun - I was particularly taken by the paint shop party and the fantastic paint wheel from which emerged some really beautiful designs:

So I'm giving myself a cake break (making) before I can start stirring up the Christmas cake!
