Lulu had another opportunity to do a kids birthday party yesterday. Kristal was the birthday girl and she was turning 8. She invited 5 of her closest girl friends to her home and Lulu taught them how to make miniature cakes.
The first part of the section was everyone made their own cake. The first thing they learnt was how to make strawberries. It was quite a challenging task for the 8 year kids, but they made more then I expected! Then the second thing they did was start making different layers of the cake. The girls have been discussing what colour of their cake should be, it was quite funny that seeing the little girls making their hands full of colour as they didn’t know how gentle they should squeeze the colour out and mix with the clay. After they completed the cake layers they started putting the strawberries and decorations on. Final step was to paint the wooden board and glue the cake on it. The first one was done!
Kristal’s mum Lisa has prepared Grill’d burger for lunch and the girls were having an “indoor” picnic time before the second section start.
The second section was all girls do different parts of the cake and combine them together to form a completed cake to give it to Kristal’s as a birthday gift. This time was much easier and faster since they were all “experienced”.
Lisa has been very organised with the food and the take away gifts, and you would have imagined the kids didn’t want to see their parents come and pick them up.
It has been a great fun working with the kids and they were all really enjoyed making miniatures.
Happy birthday Kristal!
