I’m presently sat on the trampoline in the back garden enjoying the evening sunshine with the kids, flicking through old photos on my phone and have just found a picture of Harry’s 3rd Birthday cake. There is a bit of a back story to this cake. I was 10 months pregnant with Charley when Harry really wanted a T-Rex cake for his Birthday. None of the supermarkets did T-Rex cakes and the cheapest quote I could got from a cake maker was £45, so I decided to make one myself. Now anyone who knows me knows I can burn water but after a conversation with my husband & MIL who both said I would never be able to do it, sheer grit & determination took over me. You will have to excuse the poor quality of the photos as they were only taken to prove I did it all myself but thus to say I had a very happy 3yr old on his Birthday & earned a few gold stars off the other mums for making it . Plus, the smug satisfaction of proving my hubby & MIL wrong. So if you fancy having a go and trust me if I can do it so can you, here’s how to get cracking.

Have a great rest of the day XxX
