A Birthday Cake

Birthday cake / Sünnipäevakook

Last Saturday our beautiful little daughter, Nora Adeele, turned one. Like every other parent, we are amazed how quickly time flies - it seems hard to believe that it's already been a year since she rushed into this world last January (see a post here). I've kept stories about her at minimum here at Nami-Nami, as I've been worried it'd turn into a mommy&baby blog in no time whatsoever :D But just to recap - she's been an excellent companion to us during the last year, and a healthy, curious and happy girl. She has a good appetite (we've been trying to follow the principles of baby-led weaning), but as she's also very active, she's a light one (just 8,5 kg this morning). Oh - and she's already been to Southern France (where she dined at two 3-Michelin-star restaurants :D) and to London, so she's a well-travelled little lady.

We celebrated this important milestone with a party and a cake. The party was attended by many of Nora's friend (she's very sociable and loves playing with other kids), and a delicious cake that was inspired by the famous Swedish Princess Cake - a sponge cake sandwiched with raspberries, whipped cream and curd cheese, and topped with marzipan. As you can see from the above picture, then Nora Adeele was thrilled about her first birthday cake :)

Here's another photo of Nora Adeele (and me), taken when she's about 6 month old.



Normal blogging will return as soon as I get over the shock that I'm a mother to a toddler already ;)

She is just precious. I think if I had a child, I wouldn't want to feature them too prominently on my blog either, but I'm glad you are letting us see her once in a while.

Otsin sobivat kooki meie beebi sunnipaevaks. Pille, kas oleksid nous jagama selle kauni koogi retsepti?
Palju onne ka armsa tytre puhul!:-)

Pille said...

Piret, pane Nami-Nami.ee lehele otsingusse Printsessi - seal on retsept olemas!

Pille, suur aitah viite eest!
Selle retsepti puhul oled kasutanud valget koogipohja, aga synnipaeva fotol tundub pohi olevat tumedam. Kas lisasid sokolaadi voi kakaod voi midagi muud? Kas soovitad pigem no tumedat voi heledat pohja selle koogile? Mul pole erilisi kogemusi kupsetamisega, aga vaga tahaks ise teha seekord...

Piret, see oli ikka tavaline võibiskviitpõhi, nagu Printsessitordi retseptis kirjas (võid ka poest osta). Lihtsalt pealt on kergelt pruuniks küpsenud :)
