My Birthday Cake

Though my birthday was yesterday, I was still full of birthday cheer as today was the day of my party. First though, I went to Carrow Road to watch Norwich play brilliantly for a 0-0 draw against Manchester City at a lunchtime kick-off before heading to my parents house for the party.

My Birthday cupcakes!
My mum had made me a special cake, actually make that cakes, as she made me a display of cupcakes that form the number 30. Each one has flowers and animals made of icing sugar. She even made me a centrepiece swan and blackbird, too. They were amazing! They tasted very sweet and delicious! She never made cupcakes as a birthday cake before and it turned out to be a great idea.

Dan Fromings' amazing birthday card!
As well as these edible works of art, I recieved another wonderful masterpiece in the form of a card. My friend Dan Fromings, who took me to see my first badger last year, is a talented artist and he has created this wonderful watercolour painting of me with the wildlife. I wish to say thank you to him and I will have to find it room on my increasingly full walls amongst the rest of my wall collection. My 30th birthday has been one to remember!


  1. Happy birthday, Sean. What wonderful cakes, your mum's a genius. Love the card to. Here's to another year of your brilliant blog!

    1. Thank you very much! Let's hope I will find more amazing wildlife in that time.

  2. Our cupcakes come in many flavors including yellow cake and creamy ice cream inside a Belgian Chocolate Cup. Each one has a twirl of fluffy frosting and sprinkles on top--and they now come in packs of six! alabama cakes from walmart
