Today we had a little party for the transition of Mr Seven-Year-Old to Mr Eight-Year-Old. There were all the usual elements: a gaggle of excited children, balloons and streamers, treasure hunt, Simon Says, Hide and Seek, lunch with sausage rolls, cheerios, little sandwiches, chippies, cheese and crackers, carrot sticks, cucumber and grapes. And of course there was cake.
When Mr now Eight-Year-Old was planning his party (which he has been for months) he decided he wanted a Wonders of the World party. Cool, that left lots of scope for games and bits and pieces.
I asked him what sort of cake he would like?
Stonehenge he said.
Gulp goes mum.
When in doubt, have a go...
I am delighted with the result, and it was easier than I thought it would be.
Damn chuffed with it, actually.
Amazing what you can do with icing.
