My baby turned three !!

A couple of weeks ago my baby turned three (I guess I can't call him a baby anymore can I??) and we had a little family birthday party for him.

I decided a while ago that the kids could have a birthday party with their friends every second year and just a family one for the years in between.  I did invite one friend for Harry though as he has no cousins around his age to play with and also, they're all girls!  So I thought that he at least needed one friend to play with!

He loves Thomas the Tank Engine at the moment so that was the cake taken care of.... until I actually started trying to make it... eeeek.  I loved the way it turned out in the end but it was originally going to have the sugar icing all around but it just kept falling apart.  So after an hour of trying (and probably making it even softer from all the rolling) I went with the icing just on top (you can't tell from the angle of this photo anyway).

Anyway, lots of fun was had by all and Harry loved his Thomas cake and new Thomas bike...  I think his friend wants one now too... he he he

Happy Birthday my beautiful boy....  may you always stay as gorgeous as you are right now!!  (minus the tantrums that still haven't disappeared now that you've turned three... LOL)

Oh, and just in case I hadn't had enough of cake baking, I had to make more cakes for him to take to Day Care the next day which was his actual birthday.... phew!

What a delightful you man he is, and so handsome. I love the cake - you sure have much, much more patience than I did when I was a young mother!
