Happy New Year 2013 to you all!!
You may have noticed, if you've read this blog for a while, that I love birthdays and my kids. Soppy, I know, but there it is. So combining the two? Fun x 2!!
We found out recently that some new friends, sisters of similar ages to our girls, had birthdays quite close to the girls. As such, we arranged a playdate in the middle of the older two girls' birthdays in the school holidays. I had planned to bake a little 6" cake and try out a new icing/design technique I'd seen but with Mini-1's birthday so soon after I just ran out of time. Instead, we decided to do roll-out cookies, cover them with sugarpaste and take them plus the edible food markers along on the playdate as our contribution.
And the younger sisters weren't left out - they coloured and drew little masterpieces of their own. Happy 8th and 9th birthday girls!
