I love that Miss 3 and Miss 6 made their little brother’s first birthday cake. They were pleased as punch with themselves. Taking turns to mix, add ingredients, cut out number ’1’s, spread filling on the layers and ’build’ the cake. And between the five of us, we ate it all up too!

    • Life with little ones has opened up our cake fillings to a whole new realm! It used to be just jams and butter cream (also delicious)! But bananas and fruit make such a fresh tasting, light summer cake!

  3. That looks like the YUMMIEST cake!!! I love the fillings you chose, perfect for little ones! Heck, perfect for anyone! You have me craving a piece of that cake with a cup a coffee 😀 Pinning!
