At the weekend I altered a little gift box to put a secret santa present in for my christmas meal at work this week. I have never done anything like this before and it was a bit out of my comfort zone, I see some fabulous projects on other peoples blogs when they do this but mine didn't quite turn out as good oh well. I have used my promarkers and some christmas papers from my stash as well as other embellies.

I had an image printed for him at my local cake shop of his favourite on line game character and made his favourite chocolate cake, covered this in chocolate sugarpaste, iced around the cake and finished with chocolate fingers so can you tell he loves chocolate!
We took him out for a chinese meal last night and he didn't even have pudding because he couldn't wait to get back home to tuck his teeth into this lol.
His sisters embarrassed him by telling the waiter that it was his birthday and they announced it in the very busy restaurant and he was really embarrassed lol.
But couldn't wait to get back home so that we could sing happy birthday again and he could blow out his candles I knew there was still a kid him still somewhere.
so off to finish royal icing an order for a 75th birthday now.
