We celebrated our daughters second birthday during the weekend. One of her favourite books is the “Gruffalo” so we celebrated to this theme.
KB wears her home made ears and tail - she was of course the mouse! Her cousin proudly wore his home made Gruffalo costume. My sister is very clever!!
KB’s most favourite sweets are marshmallows, so requested a chocolate and marshmallow birthday cake. This became a chocolate swiss roll filled with home made marshmallow, covered in chocolate and decorated as a log from the deep, dark wood. I managed to craft a wee (well actually he is quite tubby) fondant mouse - eating the nut.
We also had scrambled snake (scrambled egg with sushi roll), owl icecream, roasted fox (chicken) sandwiches and Gruffalo crumble.
The crumble was a home made apple crumble with boysenberries for his purple prickles, green grapes for his poisonous wart, his orange eyes were apricots and his black tongue was licorice erupting from the crumble. It was delicious!!
The table setting was the woodland scene complete with edible toadstools and leaves.
I now get to look forward to my nephews birthday and working with my sister on creating something fun for him!!!
Happy Birthday my Little Mouse x
