Two Days ~ Two Birthdays!

Its been a busy few days at Modern Mummy HQ, with Evie's first birthday yesterday and Daisy turning four today! 

It's hard to believe that this time last year I had just taken Evie home after a five day labour (yes, FIVE DAYS!) - and four years ago I was in hospital having had a surprise 1 hour labour with Daisy! (If anyone tells you it's quicker and easier second time round, ignore them!).

On Saturday night, and again last night, I was up until the wee small hours making their birthday cakes.....

Evie's Cake: Vanilla Sponge with Buttercream Icing and Chocolate Beans

From this.....
To this....
To this! Daisy's Cake: Rainbow Vanilla Sponges with Buttercream Icing and Sprinkles
And wrapping lots of presents....

But every minute spent was well worth it as their faces as they opened them, and as they tucked into their cakes were just scrumptious.

We've had a lovely, jam packed weekend with friends and family and the girls have been totally spoilt. What a perfect way to end half term xoxo



  1. Both those cakes look fabulous! I would love it if you joined my new linky Celebration Bakes And Cakes

  2. The cakes look amazing! Happy birthday to both your lovely girls :)

    My second labour was longer and harder going too. Which is particularly cruel considering you go into it expecting the opposite!
