But thanks to the wonders of Facebook, a healthy version of a baby's first birthday cake popped up in my feed one day, coincidentally just a week before the big event. Big event indeed, you see, our house pretty much runs on Birthdays. Who's birthday is next? And who after that? How many days is that? How many days now? (the very next day)
Not a day passes that the word Birthday is not mentioned. Seriously. So if you love Birthdays, you really should come visit sometime! We have 7 a year, if you don't count the dog, which I certainly would not put it past them. Shhh, let's not mention that!
Each Birthday -must- be celebrated in grand style, with cake, of course.
So anyway, back to the healthy cake.
No sugar, no butter! Made with pear puree and wholemeal flour, the icing just unsweetened whipped fresh cream. Garnished with strawberries, which Baby loves!
Naturally this horrified most of the other children, not to mention Coder, so thoughtfully I made not just one cake, but two. The other being the usual decadent sugary, buttery, chocolate goodness.
Seeing as no one else wanted to touch his cake with a barge pole, let alone eat it, I let Baby play with it for a little mini photo shoot.
Happy Birthday Baby!
So yeah great, it's my Birthday.
-Cannot- believe she's not stopping me!
Seriously, who is she?!
