The birthday cake has been made! It's taken us two afternoons to do it what with cake mixes not working out and other things going on such as wallpapering at the other end of the room. Not ideal baking conditions, it has to be said but we battled on. We've been planning this cake and getting bits and pieces for it for ages, so it's great that it's now come to fruition.
My daughter really does need to have all the credit for the idea of this Nyan cat cake - nerdy nummies. It was her idea and she's led the way with making it; I was trying to help but I'm rubbish at baking, so get all wound up when things don't work out but she stays calm and positive amongst it all. She had the idea of what to use as the rainbow tail and thankfully we had some poptarts left over from America. She decorated it all and did such a good job of the face and the little stars.
My daughter's the best! She deserved the breakfast in bed I gave her today. I hope she has as good a day as she can at school tomorrow and then out for dinner with a friend of hers. She may not think of me as a good baker but she'll hopefully realise that I do put alot of effort into making her ideas become reality.
Take care out there
