This weekend was the end of season hockey party. The boys had such a fun time. It was a pot luck dinner and I offered to make the hockey cake. When the boys were younger I used to make their birthday cakes every year, each time with a different theme. However the last couple of years I've been making their favorite desserts instead.
Needless to say I was a little out of practice. I scoured the shops for mini hockey players to put on the cake but they were nowhere to be found! So I ended up stealing the nets off our rod hockey game (they've since been washed again and re-installed on the game!) and decorating the cake with the name of our childrens' team - the Hound Dogs.
It worked out well but the cake was huge so I hope the boys like it because they are going to be finding a slice in their lunch boxes every day this week most likely.
