The day started at 5:45 am (both Kit and Kat had the alarm set for that early) - then began the treasure hunt. Kat had prepared a very interesting map of home with a trail for Kit to follow to retrieve all her gifts. Kit absolutely loved it!! Her most loved gift was the bunk bed for her dolls. So cute!
My challenge of the day was to prepare a strawberry cake from scratch and I am proud to say that it turned out excellent - in fact, its the best cake I have ever made and I have been baking for more than a decade now. I even made the piping gel myself when I realised there was no tube left at home for fancy message on cake. Hubby and Kat were super pleased and Kit was speechless when she saw the cake - I am SO happy that it turned out great!
Another year...closer to teens...Kit we love you!
P.S. In the meantime I am working on a brand new cake recipe for Kat for Feb!
