This year B2 asked for a family party instead of one with friends so we took the family out for a three course lunch at La Grande Mare Hotel. She had a lovely day and felt very grown up to be ordering her own birthday lunch.
We had a 'second' dessert at home in the form of B2's birthday cake. She asked for a Rainbow cake, so this is what I came up with. The only think I wasn't happy with is that none of the yellow icing showed up on the top of the cake. As you can see from the front edge, the yellow really POPS.
Happy Birthday my big 8 Year old.
