Toivottavasti vappusi on täynnä iloa ja ihania hetkiä vaikka tällä hetkellä ei mitään perinteisiä brunsseja tai vapputoreja olekaan tiedossa. Me tilasimme suloiset vappupallot jo hyvissä ajoin etukäteen ja aiomme nostaa maljan simalla. Syömme munkkeja ja tippaleipiä, perinteikkäästi tietenkin. Ehkäpä myös nakkeja ja perunasalaattia.

I have shared this delicious carrot cake recipe on the blog earlier. You can find it here. We actually made ours already before Easter as we needed a little pick me up cake on a Monday. It is such a great cake. Fairly easy to make and seriously delicious. This time I added more powdered sugar for the frosting as I wanted it to be stiffer so I could pipe it ( on the original recipe it sort of slides around the sides which is also a beautiful looks ( I think). The Beatrix Potter cake decorations and paper plates are so incredible cute. They are by MeriMeri and I bought mine from Popup kemut. They till have some plates left I saw. The cutest thing, not just for Easter but for all year around. I especially love things like these cake decorations as you can use them again and again. We don´t use paper plates around the house so much, but these will be so cute for summer picnics! Think little finger sandwiches, cut vegetables, individual mini pies and berries. I can´t wait!

To follow is many pictures of the cake so I hope you are ready to bake because it will get you in to the mood for it!

Mini Spa

by Sofia   -   in DIY projects  Good things for kids

The girls and I have done our little spa treatments forever. It has started from the baby massage and continued their whole life. Some kids like physical touch more than others and mine have always loved to be sitting on our laps, cuddling, having us draw on their backs and so forth. Our mini spa is no different. It´s more about a lovely relaxing feeling than an actual facial.

I like to do a whole set up with candles, special drinks ( water or tea is great) and relaxing music. And the girls do spa treatments for me too.  I recently found a great face massage tutorial on the Vanderohe highlights under sculpt that my girls enjoyed ( I did a light touch version). I also do a back & head massage. My girls favourite? When they lie on their back and I sit behind their head. I  put my hand under their back and slide my hands upwards from the tailbone, fingers by the spine, so that they lie very relaxed and I carry their weight. Continue all the way up to the point were the neck & head meet. The movement is from baby massage so you may know it. Try it! It makes them feel so nice and relaxed. I made a lovely little lounge area for them to chill at on our bed afterwards with their cucumber water. This like many other things does not have to take hours off your day. Just a 20 minute spa session is plenty for a child. In one hour I will be able to set up, do their ” treatments” and clean up.
