Who doesn't love ice cream
Yummo cake

Being my little girl's 1st birthday two days ago, the pressure (from myself) to make the 'perfect birthday cake' made the day stressful.

You can't get the first birthday cake wrong, even though she couldn't have cared less. At 1, she won't remember, she is more likely to put her hands in it and rub it all over her new party dress.

So why then, go to all the effort? Because what I have learnt about birthdays for young children is that ' it's all about the cake'.

I spent half a day getting the ingredients, cooking the cake and decorating it. At a cost of $36 for the ingredients and a good 4 hours in preparation. How did it look? I was happy with the finished cake, but it wasn't worth the stress, money and definitely not worth the time it took on her birthday ignoring her to make the 'perfect cake'.

If I knew these amazing cakes existed two days ago, there would not have been any stress involved, nor would I have wasted the most important 1st birthday making a cake instead of spending my time with her.

The cakes are not advertised, so I thought I would share my discovery with you.

You will find them at Yummo, an ice-cream shop in Main St Mornington. These are not any ordinary cakes, they are in fact ice-cream cakes made to order. Carolyn the owner of Yummo, puts an extraordinary amount of time hand making the cakes to your requirements.

They are great value, ranging between $42-$47.

So my tip to you is to avoid how I spent my daughter's birthday stressing about a cake and go and order the perfect cake for a similar price of what it costs to make and decorate your own.
With no stress and a cake that looks amazing, why bother making one?
