Fran says “This cake was made for my friend’s little girl Grace’s 4th Birthday. Her mum could not make the birthday cake as she was busy with a brand new baby.
The cake theme is ‘Walt Disney’s’ new movie ‘Frozen’ which I haven’t seen myself but I have heard very good reviews. The birthday girl was absolutely blown away!”
My children are very envious that we don’t have a friend like Fran.
