For us, the last two weeks of October is abundant in birthdays which is fabulous really - love a birthday - but bugger it's exhausting! I feel sorry for Mr Biscuit too as inevitably we spend his birthday preparing for Youngest Biscuit's the day after so we never go out or celebrate much. I did make him Lamingtons which has scored me many many tens of points in the Good Wife department. Just as well as I barely had a second to send him birthday wishes.
Traditions were kept, birthday age biscuits...
...made every year of both of my Biscuits lives and now, always decorated with a brother at hand.
And of course there was a cake...
...based on the PS3 game Driver: San Fransisco, Youngest Biscuit's favourite game. I had to edit this photo in cinemascope to match the feel of the game's opening sequence, very dramatic!
My amazing friend from the States who lives near to SF got me the Golden Gate Bridge which we spray painted red and really makes the cake, don't you think? She sent over oodles of chocolatey pretzels too, the star that she is!
The Dodge Challenger (hark at me with the car names) was made from Sculpey clay so it could be kept. I have to say it's a lot of fun making cakes like this but the sugar paste was so soft it was a right pain! I was tired after I admit. It was a cake four days in the making and I think all that creativity and organizing is exhausting! I get very sick of baking too which I really do hate to admit.
After all this effort I will be terrorized with a remote control tarantula and Nerf Guns, such is life, with boys!
It was my friend's special day yesterday and I got to be girly...
...which I don't get to do very often!
It had been a busy old time and I really did deserve this...
Two more birthdays this weekend and I have just had my two year blogging anniversary, which is just a bit mad. I think my second post ever included Youngest Biscuits birthday.
I must be off, Biscuits are back at school today, beds are stripped and Stormy (my Dyson that 'looks like a Stormtrooper') wants to come out and play.
