Happy Birthday David

Today my gorgeous wee grandson David, turned 1 year old.

This was David and myself earlier today.

This week has been a trial though, and things didn't work out as planned.
My daughter became unwell on Friday night and was admitted into hospital on Saturday morning. She only got discharged this pm, and though she's tired and sore, she's doing okay, and is glad to be home.
I had planned to bake David a special "Nok-Tok" cake, but I've been back and forth to the hospital and only managed to start making his cake yesterday afternoon.
I usually bake one day, let the cake cool and rest, then shape, form, and decorate it the following day.

Nok-Tok (character from Cbeebies-WayBuloo), is his favourite and I had planned to make a fully shaped character cake.

This is a quicker version of the cake I had in mind, with NokTok with a birthday balloon on top. I completed this last night around midnight.

I think he still liked it though.

Happy Birthday to our best boy David with lots of xxx's and cuddles, we love you loads!

I hope to post another digi sketch for you soon, now that things are a bit more back to normal.

Thanks again for visiting,

hugs Alexandra
