I’d been round the houses thinking about what to do for my little boys 3rd birthday. It turns out the decision was made for me, a low key do just us. As I’m sure many people will experience over the coming days, weeks and months…now is not the ideal time for a birthday. “Are my friends coming to my birthday?” asked my little boy in the run up. Sad times. However having a birthday and new toys to play with distracted massively from the crazy times we are currently in.

I was approached a little while ago by a lady at T Cakes (Yorkshire). She very kindly offered to make my little boy a birthday cake for his 3rd birthday. On Pinterest I went and together we agreed on a Spider-Man design. If you’ve seen my recent Instagram Stories you’ll have seen my boy has been dressed as Spider-Man for pretty much for last 3 weeks.

Tizzy who runs T Cakes was really helpful. My original brief was to have low sugar cupcakes as well as the Spider-Man cake. She was so helpful in coming up with ideas. In the end (with the lack of friends to share with) we just had the main cake. And what a cake it was! Impressive to look at and delicious. We shared it with our neighbours (leaving it on doorsteps to keep a safe distance) as it was pretty huge. It was such a lovely treat and certainly put a smile on the birthday boys face.

T Cakes provided a really great service and I would highly recommend Tizzy if you need cakes for any occasion. They deliver to your door (in the Harrogate area). Check out their Instagram here or Facebook page here.
