Things I learnt this weekend

Well, we made it…and I have grown a little wiser as follows

  • I wildly underestimate prep times
  • jellies take longer to set than you’d think
  • 20 is the absolute maximum you want at a brithday party
  • children are the perfect demonstration of entropy – they continue to expand to fill the space they are given
  • spiderman is very popular with 5 year olds
  • as is in no particular order, supercat, superfairy, obi wan kenobi, superdog and batman, or should i say batmen
  • party organisers are modern day saints and should be knighted
  • as should my inlaws
  • never try to make a 12″ birthday cake – it’s doomed
  • ruined 12″ cakes can be turned into 7 mini cakes however,  and donated to said in-law helpers as a thank you
  • fondant icing is very forgiving
  • seeing your son having the time of his life is worth it, definately

  1. Iactually have got to say you help to make numerous fantastic points and should submit a few points to add after a day or two.


    1. Thanks! I only would add that I’d do thankyou cards asap afterwards. We took 2 weeks and it was painful….
