When planning my kids’ birthday parties, like most parents, I want to capture their great passions at that moment in time, for both the theme of the party and also the cake.
My eldest son Oliver, now 6, along with his buddies, is utterly obsessed with Bear Nibbles Bear Yo Yo packets (natural fruit sweets with shiny animal based cards inside which kids collect, swap and play with)-so this year was a no-brainer, a Bear Yo Yo birthday cake it would be!
I searched online for inspiration, Pinterest, Google etc- to no avail, there wasn’t a single Bear Yo Yo birthday cake online (!)- which leads me to wonder whether this one I commissioned might just be a WORLD FIRST?!
Can you imagine?!
Enlisting the services of the super-gifted Kath of Kath’s Cakes in Harrogate (the creator of my Mulberry Bayswater birthday cake below, in November), we discussed ideas and brainstormed beforehand as I wanted to incorporate the sweets and the cards…
And she designed this show-stopper. Oliver literally gasped with delight when he saw it.
What a simply magnificent cake.
Oliver loved opening the actual Bear Yo Yo after he blew out the candles too-an extra present on top!
Thank you Kath, you made a 6 year old and all his friends very happy last Sunday!
