Yesterday was a very special day for my gorgeous little boy Mister B – he turned 3!! We had a fairly normal day with daddy and I working, big sister Miss M at school and Mister B at nursery. As I finish at 1pm on a Wednesday, I picked him up and we went home to enjoy the rest of the day and celebrate!!
Unfortunately mummy was a little tired the night before and didn’t get round to making his birthday cake, so once we got home from work/nursery, an eager to help little boy put on his apron and we set about making two chocolate sponge cakes. While they were cooling we picked Miss M up from school then came home to open his cards and presents. While they then played, I dashed into the kitchen to cook tea and assemble the cake – arghh!! I wanted it to be ready for after dinner but time was against me and I didn’t have much of a plan of how to construct my cake. I whizzed up some chocolate buttercream in the food processor, chopped the sponges into random shapes, slapped it all together in the hope it would become a recognisable creature.
