The art of icing a birthday cake for Grandpa!

…. as passed down by “my Gwanny” …

.. “first you have to lick the icing off the whizzing thing …..


” … then you have to squish the smarties on .. like this ….

” … then you get the little silver ballies .. and also squish them on like this …

” … you see … it’s very precise …

” …. then you have to lick your hands and fingers …

“…. before you carry on … using the other hand also helps …

” ooops … you need to take the icing off everything-that-gets-icing-on-it …


“… and once you’ve used up all the smarties and the little silver ballies ….

” … per…fect !! ….. all done!”

  1. I simply adore little Erin – she looks like a child full of character….and a personality deluxe!This entry has given me an idea…when I go home I'm going to bake a cake ( gosh the box kind ) and allow my granddaughter to help me and do the icing, I also want to take photo's like these for my memories…and its good bonding time for us.

  2. Oh Avril – how sweet is that? By the way, the Luigi's on B.Naude has closed – he sold that one! We go to the one in the Boskruin Centre – there is also in Olivedale. Same owners though!
