But still, I wanted to do something special. I wanted a cake I can remember.
Then I recalled I saw on Leonny's blog how she bought a cake but decorated her 3yo son's b'day cake themselves. Yes...I decided I wanted to do this too.
So, I bought a 2kg lychee flan cake from Ritz and asked them to leave the top part of the cake plain (with just the swirls on it) and told them I will decorate it myself.
Also chose the car/truck theme because Shern loves cars. Erm...actually, he loves the wheels of the cars.
So, Min & I got to work.
Crushed oreos for the muddy road.
Peanuts M&Ms for the sides of the road.
Mini M&Ms to spell S H E R N.
Added in a Happy Birthday tag and a '1' candle.
And not to forget the Chuck & Friends fleet:
Rowdy the Garbage Truck.
Handy the Tow Truck.
Boomer the Fire Truck.
An awesome one-of-a-kind 1st Birthday Cake for Yiu-Shern!
p/s-will be updating Shern's B'day party soon!
