Who Broke The Laptop?

Oh no! Did you touch Daddy's birthday cake Little Miss B?
"Nope! I'm not sure. I'm sure I didn't. I was just looking."
That's the culprit there! Lurking behind the cake in pink. She was absolutely infatuated with it! She kept asking "does he have a nose?" So I put it up really really high!
I am having a play with fondant cakes at the moment, this one is my second attempt in order to get ready for all three of my kids birthdays which are six weeks within each other. I usually just buy their cakes but I feel up to the challenge this year. My husband loves banana cake and looked quite guttered when I told him I wanted to practice my mud cake, so I compromised with the bottom of the cake being banana and top piece mud. He also wasn't sure about a guy asleep with his mouth open, on a sofa with a laptop on his lap...he thought a young fit footballer would have been more appropriate!

Happy Birthday to my darling husband! Thank you for being the awesome husband and father you are!

Three more days left to sign up for the Polka Dot Swap! Don't miss out - it's going to rock! See below for details.

That is so cool! I have always wanted to learn how to do fondant cakes. I bought the planet cake book and I am going to teach myself over the uni holidays.
