My annual baking marathon had been completed. It’s for a birthday party for my boys, whose birthdays in the end of October and early November, just 10 days in between.
Since my first son hit first birthday, 5 years ago (now he is 6), birthday party became a big annual bake off time for me.
We invited as many friend as possible to fit into our house then, and celebrated his first birthday together with Halloween, with lots of Halloween themed party foods and cakes.
This year, my boys wanted to be cowboys. So, my baking theme was set.
Birthday party can be one of stressful time for many parents. Beside dairy routine of work (if you do) and house chore, we need to organise so many aspects of the party. I really enjoy it, but it is stressful indeed. I baked so much, and thought about baking so much more beforehand. It’s crazy. The house was mess, chaos that was.
But it all worth it when kids are having fun, and parents enjoying catching up. I love the feeling of those social party.
How many more years we can have this fun, I don’t know. They might soon prefer to go out with a few friends on their birthdays. Till then, I shall enjoy those mad baking session.
