It is my second son's birthday on Sunday but as it was the long weekend and I'm busy Saturday crafting, I decided to do his party tomorrow afternoon.
So today I have been baking like it is going out of fashion.
Judy I had a go at your cake but my kids kept pinching the worms...before I could get them on it.  So I ended up with only a few on the top....but there is a lot inside!  LOL  I'll take a pic tomorrow.
The cake above is my volcano.....we are having a dinosaur themed party and the volcano seemed an easier option than trying to create a T-Rex, yikes!
I have used a chocolate cake, chocolate butter icing, red food colouring icing
 and oreo biscuits smashed!  The mould was my extra large muffin from Lakeland plastic.
I have got sparkler candles for tomorrow so hopefully that will make it look even better...should they work!
