what's in the cake? mirka's 3rd birthday party

having 2 kiddyliwinks, 2 weeks short of 2 years apart, means august / september will forever be a crazy time for us. now that i've bored enthralled you with every detail of charlie's birthday party, it's time to do it all over for mirka.. ever since seeing that rainbow cake, i knew mirka would love it, but i never imagined the funniest reactions would be from the adults.. "what's inside the cake?" "is that a real cake, or just a block of polystyrene? it looks too perfect." "i can't wait any longer. cut the cake already!"..there were actual squeals of delight when the husband cut the cake & that was just out of the grown-ups. i have to confess that i didn't make it though. of course i didn't make it! pah-lease, don't you see how perfect it was? the amazing ladies at cake art yarraville made it for me without ever having made a 6 layer rainbow cake before! anyways, the most important person on the day loved it & that's all that really matters. happy birthday to our funny little mirka-muppet, gracie-girl. x

  1. KK .. you should have left me thinking you were a SUPER mum with SUPER cake-making skills. That cake is D-evine!!

    Oh and the August/September birthday bonanza - exactly the same in our house. AND both boys are 16th (HOW did I possibly manage that!!). Will make it soooo much easier to remember when I am old and grey and my mind has gone (-:

  3. I've always wanted to make a rainbow cake! I can only image the hard work behind it, so I guess you were super clever to simply order one. The look on her face when she take a first peek at the cake is priceless. So sweet!

  9. Oh picture number 4 is fantastic! I love the amazement on all the faces!
    ...I really enjoyed catching up on your blog and looking at all your festivities. It makes me especially giddy for my own little one's first birthday. Also, I've never heard of "naming day." I'll have to research that a bit. It sounds interesting.

  11. happy birthday little one.

    i was secretly hoping you didn't make it, because i made one for quinn's sixth and it looked nothing like that. i'll just say it was very homemade looking. he loved it though and still talks about his rainbow cake.

    ps. thank you for kind words.
