Anyway this is the cake I made for my youngest's 2nd birthday. I iced on Thomas The Tank Engine, and piped stripes down the side and cut out Happy Birthday etc from regalice/ fondant!
Cake was a new recipe from Elisa Strauss Confetti Cakes book - a nice cake, very rich in flavour and depth but fairly time consuming to make.
My son would not go to sleep last night (he's 2) and I'm wondering if he got too much caffeine in the cake (it was chocolate but had coffee in it)
The presents he got he really loved, a Brio Recordable Train Station, some other train bits for our wooden track, a silver astronaut suit, a xylophone and some fab books. A very happy 2 year old. Of course his most favourite thing was the baloons!
