I wanted to add these here as well as on my family blog, because I think they are so pretty! Even though I do say so myself ;o)
I let the boys choose the type of cake they have for their birthday. Oli is still at the 'chocolate cake with Smarties' stage which is great because you can immediately tell from photos which year it was! The cake had been made at home and then transported to 'Nan's' house, which meant the '5' had slid a bit. The icing I like to use is a bit too thin for embedding Smarties, but it does taste very good!
Stuart was more specific and asked for butterfly cakes, fruit and cut-out biscuits.
