When I was a little girl, at every school fete I would have a stall called Katie's Cupcake Kitchen. My Mum and my Grandmother would spend the weeks before baking and freezing cupcakes and then on the day we would lay them all out and my customers would pay for the pleasure of painting them with colourful icing and sprinkling lollies and 100's and 1000's on top. It became a bit of a family tradition.
These days our family cupcake tradition has become all about the sixth birthday party.
Last Saturday Miss Pepper had her eight besties over to celebrate with her.
We decorated cupcake bags, played pin the candle on the cupcake and all other manner of cupcake themed games.
I used Cathie's recipe and made about six batches.
We followed most of top 10 rules from last year and marvelled that this was our 28th kiddie party.
Our family's tradition for age seven is having your ears pierced. I'm a little glad that's a whole year away.
I do love to celebrate my kids and I love a kid's party but I'm not sure about this growing up business, how on earth is my baby six already?? It's crazy.
I hope you are having a sweet day wherever you are?
And tell me, do you have any special family birthday traditions?
A kind of cake, a funny song, a theme, a way?
