Rachel got her cake made a day early so that she could take it to ballet in the afternoon. She put a lot of effort into making her "Lord of the Ring" ring cake, complete with the writing. We had originally thought of having the extra cupcakes on her birthday - but as they were all there and looking so tempting, we decided to sing and have the candles a day early too. Plenty of space for 15 candles. We didn't want to put candles in the ring and spoil that. And then we also had white icing ones for Hannah (who is most sensitive to colouring). Her presents were kept for her birthday the next day.
Happy Birthday Rachel. We all love you very much.
