I tend to associate birthdays with warm weather. Everyone in my family, except for my son, Freddie, has a summer birthday. Freddie’s birthday is at the end of January which in Toronto is a cold and often gloomy month with short days and big snow dumps.
His second birthday was a low-key event (read: pandemic) with just our family and a close family friend, who also happens to be a cake-maker-extraordinaire. She created the most incredible vanilla and chocolate train cake complete with 4 carriages, cookie wheels, liquorice train tracks, and popcorn “smoke”. It was truly next level.
I was excited to see Freddie’s face when we unveiled this masterpiece, but I was equally excited to serve his birthday cake using the Dinosaur party kit - it was so darn cute! I have to admit, he caught a peek of it on my counter a week before his birthday and I couldn’t resist letting him walk around the house with the adorable paper carry bag the kit comes in. The bag has a window so you can see the plate inside and he repeatedly said “ROAR!” after spotting the stegosaurus! Why are toddlers so obsessed with dinosaurs? I don’t know, but this kit was the perfect addition to his elaborate cake.
Everything inside it (the plates, cups, cutlery, napkins and candles) are adorable in a way that is pleasing to both kids and adults.
These simple, beautiful party accessories added a little sparkle of joy for our chilly winter birthday festivities and I can’t wait to get my daughter the Butterfly set this summer.
