I have just realized that I didn't blog about Ben's birthday.
Well, he is 9 now and Oh My Goodness, when did he get so big? He was a very happy little boy on his birthday because he got a PSP and tons of games amongst other things. He loved the Angry Bird that I made for him but mostly he was excited about the games and the cake.
It is the first time I have made a birthday cake for one of the children's birthdays because they usually see one in Tesco's or somewhere else that they want with a character on. This year Ben chose his own again but he wanted a Hummingbird cake so, despite having never made one before that is what he got and I have to say it was a brilliant choice because it tasted lovely.
This cake is a lot like carrot cake but instead of using carrot it uses banana's, crushed pineapple and pecan nuts (or walnuts) all slathered in cream cheese frosting and a dusting of cinnamon.
I printed out a little circle with a Doctor Who image and attached to a lollipop stick to personalise the cake.
