Fire Engine Cake














Hi Cake Sweeties

The cake I am sharing today is on FIRE. I made this fire engine themed cake for my son’s fourth birthday to celebrate at childcare centre.

My little valentine gets really excited when he sees Fire Engines on the road. Firemen are the daring heroes who risk their lives every day for the sake of our safety. Therefore, it is not surprising to see both kids and adults admire and respect them for their selfless work and dedication.

This year, I really have had hard time designing my children’s birthday cakes. Originally, I was planning to make a 3D fire engine cake. However, due to the number of pupils in his group, I need to make a small cake (the cake was 6” x 4” dark chocolate mud cake with dark chocolate ganache).

I utilized Fire Truck, Fire Hydrant, and Number for birthday age vanilla sugared cookies to decorate the cake and this is the thing I haven’t done before.

I have also made some Fire Hydrant vanilla sugared cookies to give out as favor. Each cookie is individually wrapped in a clear cellophane bag and with Fire Truck labels. That’s the inspiration of the brick walls on the side of the cake came from. The result was absolutely amazing!

To my dearest first born or my little valentine I often call you

I have been writing you a letter on your birthday each year.

I waited to have you for so long. There were times when I wasn’t sure we were ever going to have a child. Your Aunt Jonie had one baby and fell pregnant with another in the time we were trying. We turned to IVF out of desperation and I fell pregnant the first time (miracle and blessing), Daddy, Grandma and I cried our eyes out known you were actually inside my tummy (Grandma said its like winning Lotto but even better).

When I was pregnant I had a notion of what I thought being a parent would be like, however, nothing could ever prepare me for the all consuming, crushing love. Nothing. I love you so much some days I feel like I might burst.

There are so many amazing memories I could share; it’s hard to know where to start. You have such an amazing personality but with very gentle soul. I started like every first time Mum recorded every first and kept sharing to everyone how lovely you are as a perfect child that everyone could wish for. I love that you are so affectionate and throw yourself into my arms for hugs. You are so funny and regularly make us laugh with your questions and quirky sense of humor.

Becoming a brother was a challenge for you at first two years ago, which is perfectly understandable, you had Mummy and Daddy all to yourself for two years, it was quite a lot to get used to. However, you are sweet and often run to get Ellie a cuddle when she cries, or like to hold her bottle for her. I adore seeing you both giving each other cuddles and kisses.

There is so much I am proud of I could write for hours and hours, even the simple things like morning hugs in bed make me happy. Becoming your mummy changed me and made me a better person; made me reevaluate and appreciate what is really important in life. You are such a blessing in our life, such a joy and I am so proud of you.

Happy 4th birthday my awesome Jeremy and I cannot wait to see what the next year brings.

Love Mummy xoxo
