お誕生日会 Birthday bash!




無事、今年も誕生日会終了。今回はおまけで奏大も便乗。あまりになにもしないのはかわいそうなので。本人はやる気満々やったし。だからケーキも二つ。消防車とくるみ割り人形。
今年は喜音のブームの「くるみ割り人形」パーティ。 ピザも作ったんだけど、子供たちにさせたものだからどのピザがだれだか、焼けるのが待てないやらでちょっとした混乱になってしまった。来年はもっと考えないとな~。残ってくれたママたちにたいぶ助けてもらっちゃった。ありがとう!

The kids birthday party this year is all done! Good job, mom ;) I was not planing to it for Kanata, but feel bad for him, so I made a cake for him too. Yukine wanted to do The nutcracker party this year, so I made, of course, The nutcracker cake and a mouse king pinata. Kids made their own pizza, but it was kinda ciaos , there were too many kids ( I think about 20 kids there.) too many pizzas, some kids ate someone else's pizza ... things like that. It was mess. However many moms stayed and helped me a lot, so I could went over it. Thank them so much!


今回はPinataという、張りぼて?みたいなのもやってみました。もともとメキシコからきたものらしいけど、アメリカの誕生日パーティではとても人気。子供たちが棒で張りぼてを壊して、その中のキャンディやらおみやげを拾うというゲーム。
このPinataはくるみ割り人形に出てくるねずみのおばけ王子(のつもり。)
This was the first time I made a pinata by myself. It's not very hard, but it's not tough enough for all kids to hit it. I guess they didn't care so much as long as they could get goodies tho :p

くるみ割り人形の福笑いもしてみた。楽しんでた子は楽しんでたかな。
(パーティの時に時間がなくて写真取れなかったので後日。)→

I made a game, I don't know there are similar game in America too, but a player covered with eyes has the face parts. and build up the face without looking.

 





ケーキはいつものごとく、こっちのフロスティングというクリーム 
と着色料をなるべく使いたくないので、いちご、ブルーベリー、りんごでデコレーション。
くるみ割り人形の顔、消防車の窓、タイヤだけ、チョコに色つけました。
今回はケーキ自体も日本のレシピでロールケーキにしたので、甘くなくって若干ヘルシー??笑
アメリカ人の子たちには甘くなくって好きじゃないかな?と思ったけど結構みんなバクバク食べていた♪



ケーキ焼くの苦手だけど、デコレーションとアイデアを考えるのは大好き♪
自分のイメージしたとおりになるとすっごくきもちいい~♪

As last every year,I wanted to avoid using frosting and food coloring as much as possible (since I don't like the taste personally ), so I used strawberry for the color, whipped cream for a glue and nutcracker's hair and bread. The fire windows and nutcracker's face parts are chocolates. It's always fun to think how to make cakes the kids requested me,and when they came up like real one as much as possible, I felt soooo good :) :) I think I succeeded in it this year!

Sorry for getting back to you so late! Our family and friends, people we know are all fine. Thank you for your concern. After the earthquake, I was so worry about my country and thinking something I can do for them, and it's been so crazy busy till now.
Things I can do are very tiny little things but I hope they will get it over, praying for them everyday.
