Last week, Little Oompa Loompa turned three. I can't quite believe it, she is my first child to have been purely raised in America - apart from the first few weeks of her life. I flew back when I was 36 weeks pregnant to have her in England. I then flew back here when she was three weeks old. Not sure what I was thinking at the time!!
Anyhow, she decided she wanted a princess party.
So, I got busy in the kitchen.
I saw this cake on Pinterest and knew that I wanted to make it. I just added the figures and the ribbon to make it look more like a princess cake.
I have been meaning to make these cake pops for ages, they looked a lot of fun. But they should come with two warnings. Firstly, they are incredibly labour intensive - lots and lots of steps. Secondly, make triple what you think you may need - as they are DELICIOUS.
Then, like with everything else in my life, I got carried away. I thought I was Willy Wonka!!! I decided I had to make marshmallow from scratch, (a lot easier than you would think) but very, very messy.
I also made cupcakes, mini cupcakes, jelly in little Ikea cups - as I said, I got totally carried away. But, I love a party and my little princess is totally worth it.
