This morning they showed his birthday card on Channel 5 and he was so excited!! It was only for like 2 seconds but we have it recorded. (Cbeebies is much better, but I missed the 2 MONTH deadline for sending that in! I hadn't even thought about making his card 2 months ago!!!) Here's the card (Its A2 size for tv!)
We had an early birthday party last night as we're at a wedding today and it was lovely to have our local family around (we visited hubbies family last week). As monkey is currently obsessed with badgers (long story!), I made him a cake based on this one I saw online. I've watched a few sugar craft shows on create and craft, so had a little experiment and was pleased how my badgers came out.
I decided to paint them with black food tint as it was cheaper than buying the black icing (or trying to make my own!). I had bought a tube of black writing icing but it was awful and my test writing was horrendous, so I painted on the wording with the same tint.
Not perfect, but hey!
Here are some more pic of it!
I had some left over icing, so made some little cupcakes too.
I hope you like it, it tasted delicious (vanilla sponge with raspberry jam and buttercream in the middle) and joey loved it!
