Sneak preview of the birthday cake for a Football Mad Princess

Today we are celebrating the Birthday of my princess and this is a sneak preview of the cake that I quite literally just finished making. Well cakeS actually. Two cakes. One small and one big.

I made two designs for my Football Mad Princess. In case anyone can't figure it out, its an Arsenal jersey - the Football club she supports - with her name on it and the number 6 signifying her age.

I also made a Football cake for her as well.

Her actual birthday was on the 17th February and she was lucky enough to have the day off due to her kindergarten (and all other schools) being closed the whole week for the Chinese New Year break.

The Lovely Wife took the day off to spend it with the kids but I had to go to work. As usual we woke her up early and left presents under her bed.

One present was left under the covers of Mummy and Daddy's bed as it was too big to fit under hers - it was a small trampoline!

Later that night, The Lovely Wife cooked up a feast comprising of all of Sarah's favourite dishes. Her grandparents (my parents) came over too and a lovely meal was had by all.

My contribution was to make her a trifle!

This afternoon, the family - grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins and godparents - will get together to celebrate her birthday. Stay tuned for more stories and pictures of the birthday...

Another triumph in cake baking Dharm. I know you will have photos up so we can all see how excited Sarah will be to have such a delicious cake (2 cakes) so lovingly made.

Can I be Sarah's sister? I've already graduated 20 years ago so you can save on my college fund and just feed me cake.

Well done PD and a big birthday kiss from me.
