.More on the birthday

Couldn't let the first birthday go by without sharing some cake pics. Lil was thoroughly spoiled, as every one year old should be on her special day.
Did she approve? I think so!
Colin made an appearance at the birthday dinner. He was pretty cute, didn't exactly turn out as I planned, but the great thing about novelty cakes and kids is that they love them no matter how they turn out! Be warned, if you give Colin a go (from the Womens Weekly Birthday Cake cookbook) be prepared for copious amounts of food colouring to get the coconut a decent colour! If I were to do him again I would probably opt for coloured icing with matching sprinkles on top.

Wow Colin looks like a hit to me. I bet Lil loved digging in to him. I forgot that Lil and Simon share the same birthday.

Colin is a very boring name for a caterpillar that cool!
