T is for ….. “Thankyou”

cake

This week brought an end of an era – the last time my 4yo son would have swimming lessons with Little Otters, a local swim school for children up to the age where they start school.  His lesson also happened to be the last lesson that Little Otters would hold at that location, so it was a doubly sad occasion for his teachers, Jan and Lynsey.  Peter and I both shed tears on the way home from his lesson.

I wanted to do something to say thankyou to them both, and decided to bake them each a cake.  The cakes were Madeira cakes, with a filling of homemade Strawberry and Vanilla Jam, and Vanilla Buttercream.  Peter decided that he wanted me to make decorations to show some of the things they use in their lessons.  This is what he asked for…..

A Horse “Woggle”, some arm discs, and a float!

These were the finished cakes.

I am entering these cakes into Alphabakes, where the letter randomly chosen this month is the letter “T”.  This month’s Alphabakes challenge, is hosted by Ros from The More Than Occasional Baker.
