A Whimsical Halloween at GOLDILOCKS CAKE CITY

There’s a new party venue in town and I’m certain kids will love it here.  The Goldilocks Cake City, with its fanciful decor and ready access to delightful Goldilocks treats, is perfect for any Goldi-good celebration.


Last Saturday, our family was invited to a Whimsical Halloween Party at The Goldilocks Cake City where we experienced firsthand how well Goldilocks plans and hosts a party.  When we arrived, we were ushered to a table and given a cake to decorate.  My Jade soooo loves to do this and eagerly started to pipe icing on the cake.  She would have been happy doing this all day had we not stopped her when she accidentally burst one of the piping bags.  Jakei though just stuck a couple of the Halloween decors on the cake then set off eating all the sprinkles.  Oh, and he had a grand time doing just so. 😛


After about half an hour,  the program started and the kids had fun joining various games.  Though they didn’t win in any of the games they joined, they still got treats just for participating.  With lollicakes and choco lollipops, I’m sure they both felt like winners!


Lunch was the usual party fare of spaghetti, fried chicken, and barbeque.  There was also rice and beef caldereta available.  Halloween decorated choco cupcakes topped our meal off.  The kids were in party mode and didn’t really eat much.  Not wanting to be party poopers, we just let them play with the other children.  (There were more than a handful of them playing, so I guess a lot of parents there didn’t want to be party poopers :D).


Special prizes were given to Mommy Peach of The Peach Kitchen for her awesome cake decorating skills and the Mommy Louise of Mommy Practicality for wearing the most whimsical costume.


Though they didn’t get any special awards, both my little ones went home laden with goodies from Goldilocks.  They gifted us with pumpkin baskets filled with popcorn, cookies, cupcakes, and polvoron, and a bitbit box full of delightful cake slices.  Oh, and we also got to take home the cake the little ones decorated.


Goldilocks has truly transformed from our favourite bakeshop into a one-stop celebration specialist.  Aside from delectable cakes and pastries and a full menu of sumptuous food, Goldilocks has created an amazing venue for us to celebrate any momentous occasion.  All you need to do is choose a theme, a cake design, meal package, and other amenities and Goldilocks will take care of everything else for you.  Come party time, just show up in your prettiest and have fun with all your guests.

What Do You Buy For A Baby’s First Birthday?

A child’s first birthday is a very special occasion and one to be remembered. Just like a baby’s first step, tooth or word, it is a memorable event and one to be celebrated in style.

But what goes into a first birthday; what preparation is required and what kind of things need to be bought? Obviously gifts from a place like Grainandgram.com need to be purchased to give the little one on their birthday but you also may decide to throw a party and further important necessities are required.

Here is a detailed and informative guide on what you need to buy for a baby’s first birthday.

  • Presents for the Future

Many family and friends decide to purchase special presents to hold as keepsakes for years to come. There are various first birthday gifts which are popular including casting kits, photo frames, photo albums, jewellery like a name necklace, and piggy banks. Why not personalise the gift with the date and baby’s name to make the gift extra special? Personalized gifts hold a lot more value. Whether you choose to customize your own fun socks with your face so that they can wear them, or you decide to make a handmade card for your kid, every little detail counts, even if they are just 1 year old. It’ll be something for them to look back at as they get older.

  • Presents for Now

But you might want to get your little one something they can treasure right now and if they so happen to hold onto it when they’re older then that’s a bonus! Some gorgeous one-year-old-friendly gift ideas include blankets and teddies that any baby can snuggle to. For bath time you could try the perfect Gruffalo gift set (comes with a soft toy too). Topical baby themes for blankets and soft toys consist of Disney, Winnie the Pooh and Peter Rabbit. But let’s be honest, babies will love any character that is soft and snuggleable.

  • Cake

Whether you are planning on throwing a birthday party or not, you have to purchase a cake. Don’t forget to take a picture of the birthday boy/girl blowing out his/her first candles. You can embellish the cake with novel accessories such as ribbon, sugar crafted decorations and treats.

  • Games

A toddler is constantly learning and developing so games are great purchases for a first birthday. You can play with them at home or at the party location and they will help to entertain all the little ones. Ideas include a piñata, carnival clown pin the nose, barnyard bash, and jungle animal games.

  • Decorations

Don’t forget to buy decorations for your baby’s first birthday. Even if you aren’t throwing a party, you can still decorate the house with lovely banners and eye-catching hanging ribbons to make the day extra special.

Create a theme and use this throughout; it can be anything from a simple colour to a favourite character. Run the theme throughout the day by coordinating the tableware, wrapping paper and balloons etc.
