This year was a completely home made effort by me and Dadda. After a week of smash cakes and toddler made colourful, cakey, fun it was time to lock and load the sprinkle guns. Not the all natural colouring ones either. We’re talking the shimmery, rainbow dipped, Cuban cigar standard of sugar sprinkles. The ones you aren’t supposed to eat any more.
The lovely Stephanie of Felt Like Creating in New Zealand sent us this super cute cake bunting (along with a few other goodies too) for our boys’ celebration and it fitted our colour scheme perfectly.
Initially, 13 candles were placed on the cake, representing 1 and 3. Remembering how superstitious Granny is, and seeing Nanny’s face when she realised that there were 13 candles, a silver star candle was added too.
The initials J and L were piped with Cadburys and sprinkled too!
The cake was topped with white fondant and the sides were covered in Dadda’s homemade buttercream, and then between us we sprinkle-shot it. That’s our technical term, you know. We’re no cake makers or decorators, but when we were done, I quite fell in love with the colourful little cake.
