Aidan's 4th Birthday!

Was up early to get ready for BBQ lunch.

We headed to The Glen to get meat and ice cream, and of course, Aidan's cake. I have ordered black forest with Thomas the Tank theme. The girl told me there would be fresh fruits as deco. I said to her to leave it blank, as I had other ideas. And how did it look like when I collected it? You let me know after viewing this slide.



It was horrendous! What made them think I needed those choc flakes? They looked like fried butterflies or some over-fried fins! On a BOY'S cake! Who are they to decide that my cake looked a little too plain? Anyway, apart from this, the cake actually taste good and light, nothing like cakes we get from angmohs' shops, because this one Chinese bakery mar.

We had my in-laws over, plus Wilkin's aunt from Sydney. The birthday boy was the only child. I know, a little sad, not that he noticed that, but that's another story, if you care to know. All in all, it was a small but happy affair, and mummy had a little arvo nap, while the birthday boy happily played with his presents. I got him a kid's digital camera, and he loved it.

Belated Happy Birthday Aidan!!!

A Chinese bakery did that? When I saw it I thought you must have used angmoh bakery. I think you saved the cake quite nicely.
