Welcome to the snake pit!!


I've just finished washing up after a 5 hour marathon cake decorating session. Let me show you the Little One's birthday cake! She had the whole of Debbie Brown's 50 Easy Party Cakes to choose from and this was the one that got the vote.
The party is on Sunday at the local circus school. I'm trying hard not to imagine 12 young girls on stilts, unicycles or the trapeeze. Will the fruit juice and crisps (SO healthy!!) stay down? Will they want to eat the cake?
The baking isn't finished yet as there's still 30 chocolate cookies to make for the class on THE day (Monday) and tomorrow I'm making the 'party bags'. Well, they're not really party bags but my updated version of the slice of birthday cake wrapped in a napkin. I'll post a picture when they're done, not before as they might be rubbish!!!

Thanks Coby! If you were a bit closer I'd gladly make a few snakes for your brood!
Gail - the fun bit was putting the pupils on the eyes and giving the snakes their character. It was also the last thing that I did! Wine duly opened and a little drunk!!
Granny, it's rendered the kids speechless - so well worth the effort!!
