pics from meg's bday

K took some pictures at Meg's party. Just the four of us after work and school and kinder on Friday night. My parents joined us on skype so that was great. (that's where Meg is looking in this pic:)

Now, is it just me or is there something strange about this picture. See the candle light in the bottom speck of the picture? It was (as expected) attached to candles that were on the birthday cake. But, rather than include all that in the picture K has chosen the spice rack, light cord and ridiculously placed kitchen cabinets. Oh well. Lucky we have other pictures of the cake:


I'm no cake artist and I psyched myself out watching cake boss and masterchef just desserts anyway but the combination of chocolate cake, pink icing and bucketloads of lollies was more than enough to impress the birthday girl!


One for Granny and Nanny- the parcel from Australia arrived safely and was much appreciated:


And a bonus picture of the birthday girl in her birthday crown she brought all the way back from Australia

That cake is FABULOUS. What a great pink color!! Granny K 'loves it' (insert sarcasm) when I make cakes with great colors like that.

What a gorgeous cake!!! I think you did an excellent job! And fwiw, I am definitely no cake artist either in fact I'm getting nervous thinking about Branden's birthday cake at the end of October already. ; ) The cake you made....honestly perfect! I bet Meg really enjoyed getting such a beautiful cake.

ohhh thanks guys!

And the colour? I thought it was cute and K is desensitized now but I gave a cupcake to the girl across the road and her mum was all 'what makes it this COLOUR??' and very suspicious!

And Tigermama? you know more than my own age it'S Meg's that freaks me out- how can I be a mum to an eight year old????
