Charlie Bean is 6...

A busy afternoon preparing for the party - luckily I had superman to help with the blowing up of balloons!
Ok, please don't laugh at the cake!
My icing went slightly lumpy.  Butter was too hard.
But it tasted oh so delicious which is the main thing.
Charlie loved the lego theme, which was great considering he had mainly lego for his birthday!
Last night after school we had a quiet family party with cousins.
We feasted on homemade pizza, played with lego, laughed at the daftness of young boys and recalled memories of birth (well mum and I did, she was there when Charlie was born).
As dusk fell the sky turned golden and we all stood outside to marvel at the most spectacular sunset.
As the sky grew darker we lit the candle and sang Happy Birthday to our boy as he blew out his number 6.


  1. I'm no baker or cook so well done for the cake - it's certainly better than any of my efforts! Glad he had a lovely day.

  2. Looks like a great day- lucky Charlie x

  3. Happy birthday to Charlie :)

    Love the lego brick cake :)

    BTW I found the best way to deal with the butter was to melt it completely - found this out after I zapped it for too long when trying to soften it. Anyhow it made the best buttercream and I'll do it that way in future.

  4. oh it looks like such a fun time! the cake is great! what a clever idea. happy birthday to your little (big) dude.

    p.s. i love your yellow door!

  5. Oh great Lego theme! And i think the cake looks great - bet the boys loved it.

  6. Happy birthday to your little man.
    I thought real hard on what the cake is supposed to look like. But as soon as you know, Lego is obvious :)

  7. Happy 6th birthday big boy! You look as cute now as you did at two (photo below). And how clever is your mama, eh? Making that awesome Lego cake. Hope you had a day filled with much fun, laughter and love. x

  8. I'm not laughing at the cake. But I'm smiling. A lot. Sorry! Happy birthday to Charlie! Kellie xx
