The big birthday weekend
It was Xavi’s fifth birthday on Thursday. We had a great day at the wonderful Roald Dahl museum at Great Missenden followed by dinner at our favourite Oxford establishment which was made all the more special as the whole restaurant sang Happy Birthday up to our little man as he took delivery of his ice cream.
Tomorrow is his birthday party, for which I’ve made this spider cake, complete with little flies stuck in his web. I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. It’s a chocolate sponge with a strawberry jam and buttercream filling covered with way too much coloured icing than is healthy for any child.
But you’re only five once right?
