Saturday 21st February

Today having a nice relaxing day, a family day.
This morning got up, got ready, tidied round a little bit, though not a great deal needed doing, then made cakes with the kids, just fairy cakes but only had muffin cases so they are like extra large fairy cakes lol.
I made butter icing for the first time :/ it tastes lovely am really pleased.
We decorated them with little coloured animals and silver balls, was going to go to the shop to get smarties or something but decided to save the pennies and use what we had in.

I am really pleased with how they came out, the kids each left one with the icing not spread lol, not quite what i've of done, but their not kids long and it amused them!!
I make the kids birthday cakes each year now as we quite often found that the shop ones made us feel a bit sick, even though they do look lovely. Anyway this year am hoping to be a bit more adventurous with the decorating of them, am looking on the net for ideas at the moment so if anyone has any tips or ideas, for a little girl or a boy (ages next birthday 10/12) please send them this way!!
