We’ve reached the last of the birthday’s this Summer, next one is mine and that’s not until the end of the year! This last summer birthday was a very special one as Star turned sixteen!
I tried to move the PS5 out of the photo, but the console is too heavy for me! The cards had to be squashed up the other side of the sideboard.
I had some lovely paper and matching banner from Dom and Geri, which I reviewed a few weeks ago. (definitely worth another mention as the card, paper and banner were really lovely items. Star’s presents looked so classy. Shame about my photography which is not so classy and I’ve missed off half of her presents!
Just in case you are wondering, yes, Star’s real name is Lucy and I have used it many times on Social Media and such, but here on Raisiebay she is always Star.
Special Birthday Cake
Star had a really special birthday with friends and animals and a BBQ. We also had cake! She made a carrot cake for her boyfriend which he loved but Star wasn’t so keen. I was happy with it though, it was very moist and tasted delicious. For Star I made the usual chocolate cake. My kids don’t like shop bought cakes because none of them like jam (weirdos!) I have made some really complicated cakes in the past but this year it’s been a case of bake cake, throw on a layer of icing and then write Happy birthday on it! With Boo’s cake I coloured the icing marble blue, with the Little Man’s cake he only had icing on the top and I pipe a pattern around the sides (and forgot to take a photo) and for Star I bought some little flowers to decorated it. I used a tube of piping icing and when I wrote on the cake it looked nice, but when I went back to it later the icing had kind of melted and it didn’t look so good. Star was happy with it though.
I’ll leave you with a collage of just a few of the cakes I’ve decorated in the past.
