While I was in Bali my small person was on holiday with her dad, exploring NZ. We spent three weeks apart!! I was planning on travelling to Mexico in that time to myself, but I developed a bit of anxiety at the idea of being SO far away from my baby. In the end I decided that Bali would be easier on me for our first time away from each other. While she was in NZ she celebrated her fourth birthday without me, so today I decided that we would make birthday cupcakes together and let her be in charge of most of the making.
We made them on the kitchen floor, from a packet. It was very messy. We made little flags from toothpicks and washi tape. We made icing with a bit of red and a bit of yellow, which turned out a lovely sherbet orange colour. Zav was in charge of breaking the eggs, mixing, pouring and icing. Its probably a good thing we don't have any guests, because these cupcakes are full of eggshell!!
She came home that little bit more grown up. As they do.
