The children's turn to do some cake decorating!

Sometimes it is hard to keep the kids busy when the weather isn't that great. However, this time when the rainy weather arrived it was the perfect time to keep a promise.

The children have been asking me to make their own cakes for a while now.
They always see me getting ready for parties and want to have some fun decorating with some friends too. So the other day they finally got a chance to decorate their own little cakes for Easter.
Take a look at the pictures and check out the gorgeous results!!
 
Dominic started by covering his cake. He needed a bit if help to smooth it out, but was right to add his doors, windows and roof after that. Dominic didn't want to add any flowers, but he did add some moss and Easter eggs.
I think he did a really great job and love the blue curtains in the windows.
 
His friend who is also 9 years old made this cake with the great stones around the door.


And Daniel who is 6 years old made this cute cake with the marble door and the moss above the frame.

Next are the two 12 year olds who spent a lot longer working on their cakes. First, Stefanie's cake. I love the little chick and chipmunk you can see in this picture.
 


And here, the tiny detailed garden with the rake, pumpkin and little face peering out the window.

And finally, Jessica's cake.
 Jessica said doing this cake was so much fun and she can't wait to try her next cake project. Lots of details to see in these photos too.
 
 
 
I love Jessica's very cute rabbit and colourful vines.




Look at all the little blades of grass, the apple tree and mushrooms.



Such a lot of concentration and effort went into these creations and they all did such a great job!
It almost seems a shame to cut the cakes, but after all the work to make them, the kids wanted to enjoy eating them too.
Now Jessica and Dominic are and looking forward to the next project they can try.
We hope you enjoyed looking at the pictures. I have a couple more parties to share with you soon, including a very cute penguin party!

Have a Happy and safe Easter ��
