The age of Princesses and Pirate ships...




Today my little niece Jaime turned three. I can't believe she's three already! I made her cakes for her 1st and 2nd birthday and so it seemed tradition to make the 3rd as well. The only request was that it was pink - no problem there!

Happy Birthday Jaime

Jaime's birthday cake


This is the recipe I used for a simple sponge cake. It was delicious, very moist and only three eggs needed. It was really simple to make, you honestly couldn't go wrong with it. I just changed it to decorate it with buttercream instead of fresh cream.





We had a great day. I love being an Auntie. I also have a little nephew called Finnegan who was born in June. My brother and his wife live in Canada so I have to wait until Christmas to see him but I can't wait! Jaime had a wonderful day.







I got Jaime the sparkly dragon, I kind of wanted to keep it! And the helmet, I was impressed with my new pink helmet for roller derby but that unicorn one is amazing! Hope you enjoyed reading, and give the cake a go!


  1. Such an adorable post Claire! Jaime is so cute, I love her outfit haha (: The cakes look v. good as well ;)

  2. That is the most amazing helmet, I am quite jealous! My first helmet for my bike was so dull in comparison!

  3. That Helmet is amazing - I would of loved rocking that back in the 80s when My Little Pony Lovin was in full affect (God I sound Old) Loving the cakes too XxXx Catherine

  4. It's ridiculous how jealous I am of that helmet!

  20. Ahhhh I already said it on faceyb, but i love these photos so much! Also that hat is amazing, where is it from? i think I would get jumped riding my bike with it on - I have pink tyres and pink handles pbars and thats pushing it, but ya know, its the cutest thing ever, perhaps my little sister could rock it!x

  21. oh my gosh you are a bloody amazing aunt! my niece is about the same age and i know she would have LOVED a pink dragon and a glittery pink birthday cake for her birthday! so so cute, i think i might take note and attempt to bake next year - except i seem to have a growing collection of nieces and nephews im not sure it would be feasible. mmm maybe ill just stick to eating cake instead!
