I cannot believe my daughter turns 2 this month.  Time really has flown.


Gorgeous Little OL


Over the past two years she has grown from a tiny little baby to a very independent little toddler.  She does not like me to do anything for her. This includes dressing her, brushing her teeth and hair or feeding her all of which poses a bit of a problem as she has not quite mastered them herself yet.  She has mastered the art of undressing though – which also poses a bit of a problem.  Thankfully it is summer so most of the time I just let her run around with nothing on.

For her 2nd Birthday I have decided to do a Teddy Bear’s Picnic party.  I love organising parties – which was probably just as well in my last job seeing as I was an events co-ordinator…

Anyway – in my quest for ideas I have come across some fantastic sites.  I found a tutorial on making a plastic icing teddy bear – which I attempted last night and am so impressed with myself. The tutorial is fantastic – so easy to follow (and remember)

I also came across this site for this woman in Durban  and her company Cupcake D’lights who decorates the most astounding cakes and cupcakes.  She is a pure artist.  Her enchanted garden cake is just absolutely unbelievable.  Wow.
