Boo Moo Zoo Too

We’ve had a number of “Zoo Birthdays”….from the very first one where all our friends joined us for a day at the zoo and the cake was a hundred (or so it seemed) cupcakes (no digital photo available, but it’s so easy you can imagine it), each with a plastic animal perched on top….to K5‘s Castle At The Zoo Birthday (I still can’t believe we carried that cake to the zoo one stinking hot January day)….

….to the latest, a return to an Easy Peasy Zoo Cake for T4, baked and decorated with lots of love by her siblings, J12 taking the role of Head Chef.

Last year saw a variation on the same theme for M5; he even got an extra morning-tea-cake with the top that was cut off to give a level paddock….
