Birthday Cake for My Kids

My kids' birthdays are just 10 days apart and celebrating together makes sense. I do not have to bake and consume 2 cakes. But when it comes to decorating the cake, there is no such thing as a theme. You see, what has Ben 10 Alien Force Omnitrix got to do with Thomas the Tank Engine? But to be fair to the both of them, they have to co-exist on the same cake.

While assembling the cake, Ah Girl commented that it was unfair that 'Didi' has a cake on his birthday. Apparently, she forgot that she had a Ben 10 Alien Force cake to celebrate at her kindergarten. I told her she actually celebrated twice. She was convinced only after I placed the Omnitrix on the cake. Kids. Speaking of this; I wish to thank Little Fun Store from Ebay. I placed order for stuffs needed for Ah Girl's birthday celecbration at the school at the very last minute. Thanks to her, I got my order really quick, in time for the party. I bought kids stuff from her over a couple of years and she has never failed me.

A close-up on Thomas and his truck loads of sweets.

Lights down and candle-up.

Ah Boy looked on with interest. He thought he could play with Thomas like a real toy.

No crumbs gone to waste. I had to wash the knife after that. Ah boy was facsinated by the candle flame.

And went on to touch it. The poor boy burnt his finger. Brave boy didn't cry, just clenched his fingers together. I had to pry his fingers open to apply ointment. Till now, whenever he sees a candle or saw these pics, he will say 'hot hot'. Silly boy also got a 'Harry Potter' scratch between his eyebrows before his birthday.

Comparing last year's pictures, they are growing up so fast. If I could make a wish; time stands still for 1 day and let me hold you a little longer.

Weird Pic Parents Take

Yeah, I was bored. One sunday, my kids happened to be napping. I do weird stuffs like holding their hands, kiss their palms/fingers, smell their hair, planting kisses on their cheeks while they are asleep. I can just sit there and watch them sleep. Well, sometimes I fell asleep as well. Then I noticed how long Ah Boy's eyelashes are. So I took a picture. Worried that Ah Girl's eyelashes aren't as long, I took a picture to compare.

Who won?

Here Kitty Kitty~~

Any Kitty fans out there? Last month, I received 3 Kitty orders in a row. I was really tempted to get a Hello Kitty baking pan for the order. However, I found out that it was too small. So I did this without the mould. Was glad that it turned out well. I didn't add tylo powder to stiffen the whiskers though.

Chocolate buttercake with chocolate ganache.

For a little girl who loves Kitty and bags. Not sure if anyone can spot figure '2' on the bag. Made a cream cake instead of buttercake. Most kids prefer sponge cake, I think.

For a baby girl's first month celebration. Kitty wore the same colour as the baby. Using fondant and using patchwork method. Still has room for improvement.

Cupcakes for the same baby.

This year, I have decided not to take in mooncake orders. Thank you for your enquiries.
