Party on Dexter!

Hello and welcome. we celebrated a birthday here this week, our Dexie-Pie turned 5! All he asked for was a Lion cake (in honor of his bestest teddy) so after a little think I decided to base it on a teepee design I recently did that you can see here.

The other parent designed the invitations, that we later reworked and made into cupcake toppers. And the end result is as you can see above. The cake took a little time (I’m not the best baker, I certainly wont be applying for ‘Bake-off’ any time soon, or EVER), but looked ok in the end, it lasted all of 30 minutes once the kids arrived back from the trampoline party and then demolished it!

Dex was very happy with the result (happy me) and set-to drawing a cake inspired picture and setting up a still life for me to capture for him (that I’ve now stolen for my blog!!) before his friends arrived.

If anyone would like me to send them a PDF file of the cupcake toppers and invitation design (front side only at the mo, the 5 can be omitted) then please get in touch here.

Happy Sunday evening all.


Dexie is 3


Our sweet boy Dexie turned three recently, if you ask him what he wants to be when he is older he will say ‘a teddy bear’ so naturally he wanted a teddy bear cake for his birthday, we somehow managed to squeeze a few pirates into the festivities as well, just for good measure!



Here’s one of me getting some cuddle action with my boy on the sofa after the fun of the party. Nice. Happy times.
