As the end of the 100 day project is nearing so is my son’s first birthday, this means it’s time to start thinking about his cake and party. We’re just having a family BBQ and I know he won’t remember it so I’ve changed my mind from the original Hungry Caterpillar theme to a more general ‘sea’ theme. It seemed a shame for him to celebrate with a Hungry Caterpillar party and not be old enough to appreciate it, and as ‘nautical’ is on trend at the moment that’s what we’re going with. Today was a few quick doodles for birthday cake ideas which I’m hoping to discuss with my mother-in-law as I may need some advice on the decorations, and who better to helpĀ as she made our wedding cake.
