A Happy Happy Birthday to ALison, who's turning 21 in a couple of days. It was an awesome party at the White Horse at Surry Hills. Food was fabulous, guests were beautiful and friendly, drinks flowed well and the chocolate fountain was to-DIe-For!! I wish I had a good picture of it. Everytime I went closer to snap a photo, I end up forgetting what I was doing and reaching for a stick to poke at a strawberry/ marshmallow! *blush* LOL. The Greeed for Chocolate!! It's sinful!!
I hope she likes this little cake I made for her. It's not much compared to her huge amazing safari-key cake! My teeny weeny cake probably wont be much too eat; but at least it's pretty to look at! *shrug*. I always believe in making gifts more than buying them.
The party room was decorated in the "Safari" theme with balloons, stuffed toys! and table decor to match. The balloons were tied down by Ali's own personal stuffed animals and they were absolutely ADORABLE! Here's my favourite...I had a good laugh!
Most guests came in dressed safari-ish; animal print frocks, safari gaming costumes, hats, scarves, tiger print kitten heels, binoculars, fishing hats?! LOL and even one with a monkey hanging around his neck! It was heaps of fun; CHeers to Ali and her fellow organizers who did an amazing job!I wonder what I should do for my 21st.....hmm.....*goes into deep thought* Ideas anyone??
The cake was orange and chocolate chip covered in royal icing and sugar paste for the fiddly bits. I used a mini cake tin and had scraps of extra cake batter. My housemates were overjoyed....yummy little blueberry and orange cupcakes for everyone!
I covered the cakes with spoonfuls of blueberry jam and stuck fresh fruits on top with a squeeze of royal icing. They dissapeared within the hour!
