Another Moshi Birthday - 10 years old! (and lots of yummy cupcakes)
Pretty much everyone who has ever read this blog will know that we are HUGE Moshi Monsters fans in this family! J's preferred birthday theme each year for as long as I can remember is Moshi and so this year, the year he turned 10 (!!!), was no different.
It was Moshi cake and Moshi presents galore!
Despite seeing the Moshi Movie at a special premiere event last December, J was delighted to get Moshi Monsters: The Movie on DVD. He plans to work at Moshi HQ one day and is already planning the plots for future Moshi movies.
We also bought him the Monstro City Board game which is really well thought through and is great fun to play.
Miss T didn't miss out on the birthday excitement as we gave her a Talking Poppet so that she got to unwrap something too.
Instead of a whole moshi-themed birthday cake like last year, The Brilliant Chef and his little assistant made lots of cupcakes for J's birthday. They added Moshling figures on top as J adores Moshlings!
We used Pudsey cake cases as you might remember that J loves Pudsey bear.
The cakes are really simple to make, just mix together 125g of plain flour, 125g caster sugar, 2 eggs, a teaspoon of vanilla extract, and 125g butter or margarine. Then they just need around 15 -18 minutes in an oven pre-heated to 180C.
I had a go at piping the frosting after seeing this blog post from A Mummy too. We tried both the piping method and the spoon and dip method. I think I need a fair bit more practice though as my icing never turns out too well.
The icing that looks like chocolate frosting is actually a healthy frosting recipe I found on Chocolate-Covered Katie. Anyone who likes peanut butter will love these but if you don't like peanut butter then steer clear.
Happy Birthday tenth birthday Joshi Moshi! So proud of you and love you so so much!!!!
