Birthday cake topper


I really should do a posting about birthdays.  It’s my son’s birthday today and even though the party is at home it’s cost a small fortune.  I do have to say I was very impressed with, from which I bought a Manchester United cake topper.  This is the company’s website:

I phoned the company at 9.30pm UK time. To my complete surprise a real person picked up the phone at that time of night and the order went out in the mail the very next morning. The parcel arrived six days after the order was placed and the total cost including postage etc was NZ$13.40. That’s a bargain.

It is even personalised with “Happy 9th Birthday Milo” on it.  When I did a quick Google search last week  I couldn’t find a New Zealand company offering these – although there probably is. Even if I did, I’m sure it wouldn’t have been that reasonably priced.

“Birthday cake topper”

    My sister-in-law’s son was born on her birthday, so every year she orders an amazing cake for them both. This year for his 7th and her 40something birthday they had St George slaying a dragon around a castle! Then I was sent this link to a Russian lady who makes the most stunning cakes I’ve ever seen! Enjoy!

    He loved the cake. Thought it was the business.
    It was great to see him so happy.
    Unfortunately I couldn’t find my camera at the vital moment, so there is no picture of him blowing germs all over it.
