Birthday Disaster

My daughter came home yesterday from school and was desperate to help mum with the cooking for her party today. So even though she was really tired I let her. All was going well until I removed the oven themometer which was in the way of the cooking tray's and I was juggling two trays and she whipped round behind me and grabbed the hot themometer. Luckily she dropped in quick smart but the damage was already done. So we ran it under cold running water for quite sometime then I let her have a nice bowl of water for a while but an hour and half later she was still screaming. By this time it was almost time to pick up my son from school so I had to get my MIL to look after her rush to the chemist and they gave me some anticeptic cream with a local in it. Instant relief. This morning she has a large blisters on each of her thumb, index and middle finger but they don't seem to be bothering her too much.

Well the 5th birthday party went off without a hitch the entertainment were great (Groovy Chicks and PirateShips) who did a fairy themed party. So all I had to do is feed them at the beginning and hand out the cake at the end. The cake is from the Crabapple Cupcake Bakery cookbook which I bought a couple of weeks ago there are lots and lots of lovely cakes and plenty of hints to make the perfect cupcake and a few layer cakes as well. I had to make mini cupcakes because the usual size are just too big for littlies and all the end up eating is the icing.
