First of we made a secret present for daddy, which will be revealed tomorrow!! Then we made a party staple of cornflake cakes, Arthur had great fun mixing in the chocolate and having a cheeky taste test!! Then finally we made a chocolate birthday cake! I had a moment of panic when I realised that I had run out of self raising flour, but then found out I just needed to add 3 tsp baking powder per 200g of plain flour and apparently that's just the same! Arthur enjoyed his usual 'mix mix' treat of licking the spoon after as well! I'm hoping to decorate the cake tomorrow with Arthur and an attack of sprinkles from a great height, shaken very vigorously, so tomorrow could be just as messy as today!
As well as filling his belly, Arthur has worked on his coordination and fine motor skills as well as a few other things doing some more top secret jobs ready for tomorrow!We are looking forward to daddy opening all our presents!! We hope he likes them!
