Liam is three!

 Last Tuesday, Liam turned three. Nanna and Grandad came to help him celebrate with a special birthday dinner.

I made him a cake and he managed to blow out all three candles in two giant puffs, set to rival the big bad wolf.

The cake was inspired by another blogger, who was also inspired by The Idea Room.

(Hey, check out the action shot of me dropping icing everywhere!)
My cake started out looking like a bunch of very colourful pancakes, which I had to cool and store overnight in my locked pantry.

But a bit of icing fixed that. I haven't made my boys a birthday cake yet, that didn't have Smarties on it. This one had tiny marshmallows too.

Both Liam and Noah were pretty impressed with the cake. I missed Liam's excited expression when I cut the cake and he was able to see the colourful layers, although Maxx was able to catch it on video.

He was pretty excited about his new red tricycle too!
