Busted!

Mr Ten-year-old made the transition into Mr Eleven-year-old last week, so naturally we had to mark the occasion with a party, and the only reason they get parties is because I like to make cakes! The birthday boy decided he wanted a Mythbusters party theme, which was great because it meant we got to do experiments and do things that went bang. The Coke and Mentos experiment was a bit of a fizzer, but blowing up plastic bags with baking soda and vinegar worked a treat!

For the cake I felt obliged to do mean things to Buster... Birthday boy was amused....

I hope you're keeping an album of these creations, Vanda? They're fantastic. xx

Vanda - What a great idea for a birthday! We're a Mythbusters family, too, so I can see why your son likes that show. I just love the cake, too!! Fantastic!

Overkill?

I am not much of a cake producer, but twenty years ago my eight-year-old son made a gorgeous dinosaur. It was a bit dry, though, as he had used quite a lot of flour and fiddled with it for a long time.

Cakes are so much fun to create. Trouble is, each year they expect a better one...
