Ethan with Mummy, Papa and the castle cake(cake three) at Suki Sushi Ethan turned three on 27 Nov this year. While most pre-schoolers' idea of a birthday party is one celebrated in their school, Ethan wanted his birthday party to be in a restaurant with a big cake.
Last week he started asking for a pink castle cake. His school mate Rachel had one, he said. That got us busy. We surfed the web and located Yiling Confectionery, the shop featured in the Straits Times recently for their innovative cake designs.
We emailed Yiling a picture of the sample castle cake with the following specifications: "It is for my 3 year old boy. He likes pink. We want to include some pink in the cake to please him but at the same time we want to make sure that it doesn't turn out to be a princess cake for girls. His other favourite colours are purple and red." The cake was a BIG surprise and the kids were thrilled to see it.
Yummy, I can't wait to dig in! Ethan loves to sing birthday songs. He is usually the most boisterous and loudest kid at birthday celebrations. However, he was quite a different boy when it came to his own birthday. We noticed that he just sat there rather serenely and enjoyed the attention when we sang him his birthday song. He knew that he was the star that day!
