Some delightful IKEA cake tins have appeared, and Min thinks she has convinced Opal and Agathe that they are new funny-shaped bathtubs.

They humour her for a bit, however they are not really fooled, and luckily they are in the mood for baking today!

    • She has her own Hitty Dulcie that she can play with when she visits – she does recognise Hitty as a special kind of doll, but just at the moment her favourite thing to do is disrobe them!

  1. Not only did they make a beautiful cake, but it was very tasty too. It was a delight to watch the little one blow out the candles for the first time! And to hear her tell of other recent happy day events, like her youngest uncle’s birthday last week, with emphasis on ‘happy’.

  2. hard to believe the littlest one is already 2! This cake is great fun. And as always the “girls” are so helpful and so photogenic!!

    • I can hardly believe it either, but it’s true! She is quite the little individual, and loves coming here to play with her Hitty Dulcie…The wooden girls are sometimes nervous but she is very well supervised and so far has treated her Dulcie very kindly!
