Birthday cake


Today was my son Gaston's 4th birthday - I can't believe how quickly time flies!

Since we only moved to Pontarlier five months ago and our extended family lives too far away, we couldn't plan a big party full of kids and chocolate stained T-shirts. But a birthday is not really a birthday without a cake so yesterday evening I got elbow-deep in chocolate and produced my very first (worth mentioning, at least) birthday cake!

Since Gaston almost prefers blowing out candels to eating the cake, I put more than just four candles. And to hide the chocolate stained paper I sprinkled the plate with smarties (which, as it turns out, was Lily's prefered part of the cake).

I also listed a new eyeglasses case this afternoon, made of charcoal wool with vintage plaid necktie trim.
What a day!

  1. Najprej jasno najbolj pomembno: Vse najboljše malemu dečku :) Torta zgleda čist OK in ne kaže nobenih znakov prve peke.

    "Očalnica" pa je tudi lepa. Topla, zimska, umirjena.
