I celebrated my birthday with a party yesterday.
And no- don’t panic- you did not forget! My birthday is actually on December 28th, but because its slap bang in the middle between Christmas Day and New Years I celebrate it early. I’ll also be away on my birthday this year, so I wanted to celebrate with my son, friends and family before we leave for Oz.
I invited a whole lot of friends and family over to our house yesterday to celebrate with me and lemme tell you bunnies- my house has never been that full! It was quite spectacular how many people came to my birthday party! I was beyond flattered! At one point there were maybe 50 people- and so many many children! It was so very wonderful and noisy and fun and glorious and smile inducing!
I baked 3 different kinds of cupcakes for the day! I did a chocolate one with a strawberry inside, decorated with strawberry flavoured butter icing, confetti sprinkles and a fresh raspberry. I did a chocolate one with caramel inside, decorated with caramel, chocolate fudge icing and hundreds-and-thousands. And I baked blueberry cupcakes with purple butter icing, silver dragees and fresh blueberries! I have a little cupcake stand now and they were beautifully displayed too! And they disappeared at a rate of knots lemme tell you!! And there were lots of nibbly and snacky things and sweeties for the kidlets.
And lawdy was I spoilt!!! Bunnies- I got so many gawjiss gifts!! Everything from cookies to jewellery and pot plants!! I adore pot plants and I have always had plants in my home- now I have two more! And the jewellery… wow! Home made biscuits, a cupcake cookie jar, glass cutting boards with cupcakes on! A cupcake recipe book with 500 recipes in it!! Gift vouchers, a handbag, a picture frame, cash, chocolates, flowers, a cupcake cookie tin… it was just mind-blowingly fabulous!
You guys know me so well!!
