Birthday Cake and Magic Bubble Balloons

by Twitchy on December 19, 2012

My shoe-loving sister in law turned 50 this week, so the cake was labelled 25 x 2 as she refused to see the total ruin the cake.

Miss almost-6 tried her hand at blowing magic bubbles. It comes with a small metal paint-like tube and blowing pipe. You squeeze out a little blob, pick it up on the end of  the pipe. (The tricky part is twisting the stretchy bits back on to the blob) then blow! Pinch the end to close and remove- voila, you have an instant magic sticky bubble balloon. Like a cross between paint and bubble gum! (And yes, it’s everywhere but easy enough to remove from the trampoline, etc.) The things we do for a few moments’ peace, I mean, science.

Spectacular cake! I wouldn’t want to see ’50’ on my cake when I get ther either! Bubbles are fun :)

Love the cake, and the idea of not having the 50 on there. I might have to go with 2 x 16 for my next birthday.

Where did you get the magic bubbles? Think they would be a hit here.

Do I really want to tell you that I’ll be having a double 21st next year? BY MYSELF. We got the magic bubbles from the gift display at our local pharmacy. The brand is Magic Balloon by JOHNCO Productions, Germany. All Primary colours.

Oh that is an insanely awesome cake, love that she didn’t want the big 50 to be obvious on it.

Yeah, I’d probably prefer a big shoe on my cake than a big number too.

ohhh what a yummy looking cake very fancy!!! Is the shoe edible?? Yummmmo!!!!

Happy Birthday to your sister!


Twitchy December 19, 2012 at 11:29 am

Oh yes…I believe the shoe is solid white chocolate.
