|Iggle Piggle and Upsy Daisy|
Ella looked very pretty in her red dress with white spots on (I'm sure it belonged to Minnie Mouse lol) and she even had sparkly shoes (I was jealous) and a tiara - no mistaking the birthday girl!
In honour of Ella's birthday and also my newfound skills in cake decorating - skills might be taking it too far, maybe let's say because I have been attending cake decorating classes, I thought I should try and be a little adventurous.

|In the Night Garden|
I did my best on this cake and I think it came out ok (though I am still of the opinion that In the Night Garden is too advanced for me lol) and Ella recognised who the characters were so I was happy about that and that was all that really mattered anyway. Half the cake was devoured by the time we left the carvery so I'm hoping that means they enjoyed the taste of it! All the characters were made of marzipan and the cake was covered in sparkles so that's not surprising really :p I do feel there are still plenty of things I need a lot of practice at such as symmetrical writing, making characters sit up properly on the cake without looking like they're about to topple off and also I can see some issues with how I covered the cake, but all in all I was happy with the overall look of the cake.
So anyway, I hope you like the look of this cake and take a good long look at Upsy Daisy as I don't intend on making her again!
