Birthday Cake and a Bobble Hat

Saturday was Small's 8th Birthday so I needed to make a small cake for him - we spent the weekend at the seaside but that's another story.  His main cake will be on Tuesday when he has his party.

Make two chocolate sponges, add lots of chocolate buttercream

 and top with chocolate sweets and a candle

Ta - dah

Bobble Hat

My bobble hat is finished (apart from the sewing up) and as we do not know whether LizzieDotDot is having a boy or girl I thought I would make two pom-poms, one blue and one pink - how traditional!

The hat ready to sew
The blue pom-pom
It has been a while since I made a pom-pom and couldn't remember the size and scale of them....................................................

Something tells me that the pom-pom is a little oversized for the smallness of the hat.
What do you think?  Do you think I need to make the pink one a little smaller?  Do you think the blue one might just weigh the poor baby down too much - bless, they can't hold their heads up anyway and this one won't have a chance while its wearing this one!!

There is a giveaway on so pop along and have a look.

I love the chocolate cake, hope small enjoyed it. Hope you had a lovely time by the seaside and yes, think the bobble is too big. The baby won't be able to walk until its 3! x
