Dragon turtle

This year Jude is having a Dungeons and Dragons birthday party, and he requested a dragon turtle cake. Apparently dragon turtles are gigantic sea creatures with the body of a turtle and a dragon-like head, with massively armored shell impervious to most weapons.

It is supposed to be the colour of the sea in which it swims, with a touch of silver about its armour. Or in this case chocolate.

Jude’s birthday theme for 2013 was ancient Greece – and he requested a disembodied Medusa head as the cake.

On serving, the blood was added (mmm, jelly)

The theme for Jude’s 2012 party was Harry Potter – and every Harry needs a golden snitch (with toffee wings)

Deploying the wings was nerve racking!

Okay, for Iron Chef Goat  I took on goats milk and blancmange, to make this Rose Water Folly.  Nom nom nom, and so very pretty. 

Sometimes I surprise myself with my girliness.

Wii party?

So, apparently this character is Toad.  I know nothing of this thing they call Wii 🙂

Strange little critter

Jude declared his seveth birthday theme would be star Wars, so it was a light sabre cake this time around.
