Special Day

Well, today is a very special day, it's my lovely sister's (Eleanor) birthday! She has helped me so much with this blog, and was actually the person who told me I should start a blog! So as you can imagine I have a lot to thank her for.

As part of her birthday, we had a tea-party, no she isn't six... but tea party's suit any age, even oldies. So yesterday, I went out and bought all sorts of nice things for it and then baked numerous lovely edibles, mini, medium and big. I'll post about yesterday another time, I can't just yet (in case she reads my blog). In true birthday style all this was only decided on Friday and I didn't wrap her present until 11pm last night... nothing like last minute!

At the tea party we had: Alphabet and gummy bear cupcakes (of all sizes), sparkly crispy cakes (they never get old!), chocolate dipped marshmallow pops, magic wands (White chocolate finger with magic stars on the ends. Our mum always made these for us as little kids and I thought it would be a cute little addition, plus they taste great) mini tomato pizzas, puff pastry numbers (we used to make these when we were little because Eleanor was too fussy for sandwiches) and mini sandwiches of different flavours! I can't wait; I swear I was more exited then she was...! I'll put the recipes on another day, but there's pictures below.

I really hope she liked it and has a great day because Eleanor, although we might not always agree I love you heaps and think you're "super amazing". Enjoy being three years older than me, but not for long, HAPPY BIRTHDAY YOU OLDIE! xxx
