I can't believe that our little fella turned one yesterday.
I have no idea where the last year has gone, but I know that what I have at the end of it makes me very proud and a very lucky mummy.
I tried making Sam's birthday cake and then decorating it with sugarpaste - this is the first one I've attempted. I made my normal chocolate cake (find the recipe here).
I crumb coated it using some chocolate buttercream, then used some coloured Regalice in turquoise and orange to create a present effect.
|Sorry - couldn't get to it to take a decent daylight photo before it was eaten!|
It's not perfect I know, but for a first attempt I was really pleased with it and so thought I would share it with you.
It was, of course, more for us than Sam. But I think he enjoyed his first taste of chocolate cake.
Happy Birthday Sam.
I can't wait to see how the next year goes.
