3rd March - pirate birthday cake
When I organised Eli's party, not knowing when Thea would arrive, I delegated all the food to my parents, leaving just the cake as my responsibility. Eli requested a pirate cake, and after initially considering a treasure chest, I decided that this was a rather easier option. I had a lot of fun making it and Eli is thrilled with it. I just hope it survives the journey to the party tomorrow and tastes as good as it looks.
