Flashback Friday...handmade

Opps...late I know...This one had me stummped for awhile...

I have lots of handmade things but the idea could be anything...and there is nothing more handmade than a birthday cake....every year up until our ninth birthday Mum made a cake, of our choosing, out of the 'Women's Day Brithday Cake' book, ( a traditon I hope to carry on for my own kids!) Mum's old recipe book has the names and birthday that each cake was used for...and I don't think there is one repeat...not bad for 4 kids!!

So anyway here are some of my earlier cakes from my birthday parties...

Hickory Dickory Dock....My 1st Brithday...1981I'm the one in the middle in the white

Miss Piggy...My 2nd Birthday...1982I'm in green this time...looks handmade to me...and back in fashion??

Dolly Varden Cake...(I think that is what they are called??)..My 3rd Birthday....1983Nope that is not me in front of the cakeI'm at the very front left

Twin baby dolls...My 4th Birthday...1984...

Swimming Pool...My 5th Brithday...1985....

I have no idea about My 6th Birthdy and can't find any pictures....:(

Number 7....My 7th Birthday...1987...
