Birds and Ladybugs

This was my very first birthday cake with a little story behind it : )

Several weeks ago, I met the lovely lady who runs this little bistro, here in Dubai and she mentioned that her son's birthday was coming up. 

She wanted a cake that incorporated his favourite stuffed animal (that fuzzy guy you see in the picture below, let's call him Bob) into the design, so sweet.

As it happens, little Bob has been on quite an adventure. 

During a trip to visit an Aunt in England, Bob went missing and our poor birthday boy was inconsolable. Naturally, an intense bird-hunt ensued but he was nowhere to be found. 

Back in Dubai, the store had of course, sold out of Bob's other winged brothers and sisters. There was even an attempt to create a doppelganger that failed miserably - things were looking pretty bleak. 

Then, one day, little Bob arrived in a package on the doorstep! 

He'd been hiding out in Auntie England's house all along, silly Bob : p
