Birthday cake panic: Zach’s birthday 1 month today,eeeeek!

Oh dear. Chris and I have foolishly decided to mark Zach’s first birthday with not one but TWO parties. It has just occurred to me that this will necessitate TWO cakes 🙁

I am possibly the least creative person I know. Matthew and Anya frequently over estimate my skills. Here are last year’s efforts, an A4 Silver Link and a butterfly (which Anya still can’t see!)

Then there was Chris’ birthday cake as a Lego block:

I’m thinking that for the parties I will just do a basic cake as there won’t be much time due to preparations. However, on his actual birthday I think I will make Zach a cake, possibly use an idea from my childhood: a clock or a hedgehog. Fingers crossed he doesn’t have high standards. Watch this space next month…


  1. I made an easy cake for Kitty’s birthday. A regular shaped cake on a too small cake stand, red ready made icing, white choc buttons – ta da – a fairy toadstool ! I added some toy fairies and she was a happy girl. Have two great parties. Don’t stress about the cake.

    Awww you are super creative, my skills couldn’t touch this lol! Wow you are going to be super busy with the two parties, good luck x

  3. I think you did a splendid job at cake making so I don’t think you have anything to worry about. I don’t think I would be very good as I am not artistic in the cooking sense lol x
