A few weeks ago my eldest boy turned 9. The night before he asked me to hide his presents and then jumped up early, dragging me out of bed to play “hot” or “cold” till he found them.
This year we decided against a party, but to do a fun activity and invite one friend to join us.
He chose mini golf.
We didn’t keep score but just played for fun.
After mini golf, he went off with his Aunty to pick a birthday present.
In the afternoon I decorated the birthday cake. I attempted to make a LEGO minifigure cake. I made two quantities of vanilla cake from the Women’s Weekly Children’s Birthday Cake Book and cooked them the day before. I found a LEGO Minifigure template online that I used as a guide to get the right size and shape for my cake tin.
Then I made up the icing, and also bought some black icing in a tube, for the outlines of the LEGO man.
With all his gifts
The present he chose from his Aunty that is worth two years of birthdays, wonder if he will remember that 😉

And then he got another birthday cake made by Jo – check out her new cake decorating blog.
