A very happy un-birthday ...

 .... to you my delicious Jake.

Your birthday is is in the middle of summer when everyone is away on holidays so we had your birthday party VERY (almost 2 months) early this year.

You had a fun bowling party with good friends and all I had to do was make a cake!!!

Blue cake with choc coins

Take a $5 mud cake from the supermarket and cover it with blue butter icing and some chocolate coins.

Make a chocolate dome in a greased bowl to put over the top.

Decorate with lollies using a bit more melted chocolate.

Sing the birthday song, blow out some candles and give the birthday boy a nice clean hammer.


And you have a pinata cake!!! (And a happy chocolate eating boy!!)

And here you are opening your presents at home.

I love you my Jakey Boy and wish you such happiness every day of the year .... even on your actual birthday!!
Love, Mummy xoxox

What a FANTASTIC cake, I've never seen anything like it. Perfect for a gorgeous little boy, even if it wasn't his real birthday. Good idea though to have a party now, I've heard of others doing that lately.

What a wonderful idea! Will save it for when I am a grandma.

We used to do half year parties for my youngest. He was born on the 1st of Jan so on the 1st of July he would have a party with his friends at school and another before the end of the year. Obviously your creative skills extend to other mediums besides fabric. Love working with chocolate!

Wow Andi, you are SO creative. What a fun cake for a young pirate! Happy birthday to both your gorgeous children. xo

I just made that cake too! Nothing like a pinata cake. My ten year old loved it. Happy Birthday Jake!
