Yay! It’s Easter Weekend. We made some Easter nests yesterday when it rained all day and we were dreaming of Spring…

I love these little traditions I get to do with my girl! I’m also pretty proud of myself for letting Summer at it with the chocolate, clearly SHE HAD A BALL and went straight to the bath afterwards!!

So it’s pretty obvious but here’s what you need:
8oz plain chocolate, broken into pieces
2 tbsp golden syrup
2oz butter
3oz cornflakes
36 mini chocolate eggs

1. Line a 12-hole fairy cake tin with paper cases. 2. Melt the chocolate, golden syrup and butter in a bowl. Stir the mixture until smooth. 3. Remove the bowl from the heat and gently stir in the cornflakes until all of the cereal is coated in the chocolate. 4. Divide the mixture between the paper cases and press 3 chocolate eggs into the centre of each nest. Chill in the fridge for 1 hour, or until completely set. ENJOY.



Birthday Celebrations

I’m finally getting around to sharing a few photos from Summer’s 2nd birthday party from a couple of weeks ago. We had a lot of fun squeezing everyone into our little apartment! I hand-stamped some bunny invitations, we blew up a few balloons and kept the menu super simple with a triple layer vanilla buttercream cake from Magnolia (one of Summer and I’s fave bakeries in the city!!!), some fresh fruit and chocolate milk for the kiddos.

A big shout out to my Mum and Auntie Avril who came into town for a few days, we had such a fun week celebrating, eating good food and walking the legs off ourselves! Of course they were such a help too cleaning dishes and picking up toys wherever they went…and then there was the free baby-sitting!! Thanks ladies…feel free to move in in May!;)
