This year I've gone the opposite, no effort route - 8 kids in a bowling alley which does lovely pizzas and ice creams, and I've even (shock, horror!) BOUGHT the cake! I've not been feeling well the last few days and baking has not appealed, so F went to the supermarket and returned with a cake with Yoda on it. Job done. I was horrified at the thought, but once I'd embraced the lack of effort, I accepted that it's ok - M normally just eats the icing and leaves the cake anyway, so why spend hours slaving over the baking and decorating?
But for next time, here is some of the inspiration I've found on Pinterest - all currently on my 'eat me' board, though I think I need to start a party board!
Do you have a favourite birthday party memory from your own childhood, or have you decorated a cake for your kids and been really proud of it? I'd love to hear about it!
Hope you all have a great day whatever you're up to.
