139 / 365 – Dartboard Birthday Cake

It was my nephew’s 5th birthday yesterday. He had a family birthday tea last night and he’s having a party tomorrow for his school friends.

Jake and Ella

He loves playing darts with his dad so it was the perfect choice for his cake.


Today’s 365 photo

I bought the topper from Ebay for around ยฃ5. It was really easy to apply and made the job a lot easier than piping it on or making it out of sugar paste.

So I’d like to wish my lovely nephew, Jake, a very happy 5th birthday and hope he has a wonderful birthday party tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

    brilliant cake, topper or not it is still well done. We use to play darts as kids but mum threw them in the bin as if my big brother annoyed me I used him as a dart board ( not that Im a horrible bad tempered so and so or anything)

      Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚
      I think I'd have thrown them away as well if I were your mum!

      Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ I was going to attempt to make my own out of sugarpaste but decided I wasn't good enough for that yet!
