belated birthday bouquet

October 21, 2013

After a cursory examination of my recent(ish) posts you could be forgiven for thinking that I have three daughters, all with autumn birthdays, but it’s just that Super Girl, what with one thing, has been having a bit of a birthday month. She rounded it off yesterday afternoon with a felting workshop with some friends at the lovely Woolyknit, followed by pizza at Fresca. Since no birthday celebration would be complete without cake, Super Girl decided that she would like to have a go at the cupcake bouquet that we saw at the craft show a few weeks ago. This involved our first experience of italian meringue buttercream icing which, turns out to be lovely, but incredibly faffy to make. We did enjoy playing with S G’s new sugar thermometer though, which was fun. And here it is, in all it’s glory: Super Girl’s birthday bouquet!

      Thank you, though it’s really Super Girl who deserves all the credit, I shall shamelessly take it anyway! I think she should be pretty proud of herself for a first attempt.
