Friday was Dylan's birthday and we had a quiet day so Dylan could play after being stuck in his buggy for the previous 2 days and I could bake in preparation for his birthday party the next day. I made a carrot cake using my mum's recipe, it's really easy to make but took me a while because I haven't baked in so long. The recipe produces so much mix that I managed a big cake and 12 cupcakes.
I also made some ground almond cookies - they were bite sized because that is the size of the number 1 cookie cutter I found. On Saturday morning I went to town with the sprinkles, decorating the cake, cookies and making some marshmallows on sticks dipped in white chocolate and sprinkles.
I was really pleased with the outcome, it looked fab but I don't think I will be able to keep up that level of effort every year!
