Happy Birthday Pepper.

Happy Birthday to my beautiful two year old.

What a great day you are going to have filled with all your favourite things; your family, yummy food, singing, presents and cuddles.

I think Indi got it right the other day when she asked us what we ever did for laughs before you were born.

You are so funny and clever and into everything.

For your birthday I made some sprinkle sticks. I can't wait to watch your face as you enjoy yours.

I intended to make grissini but ran out of time so ended up buying a box from the fruit shop.

I melted some white chocolate over a saucepan of hot water.

Stir, stir stired it until it was smooth.

I painted two thirds of each stick with the melted white chocolate.

Then I sprinkled the 100's and 1000 on the chocolate until they were completely covered.

The crunchy chocolaty spinkly treat is delicious.

Happy Birthday my two year old. Please don't grow up too fast.


  1. Happy Birthday Pepper! It is my birthday today too. I hope you all have a really great day. Have a sprinkle stick for me!

  4. Naaaaaaaaaaaawwwww... Happy Birthday Little Pepper!

    I am just a couple of months off having a 2 year old birthday girl myself... I may HAVE to make some of those sprinkle sticks, they are inspired!

  5. Happy happy birthday to Miss Pepper. Have a fantastic day. Those sprinkle sticks look so nice.

    Andi :-)

  8. I am sure you have the best kids parties on the PLANET!!

  9. Firstly a warm happy birthday to Miss Pepper! Time flies past so fast and they grow so quick. It's an amazing feeling

    Great idea on the sprinkle sticks. So simple but so effective.

    I think I am going to hire you to do my birthday parties in the future. My hubby is turning 40 in Feb ok? Have a great party day Kate. Looking forward to all the photos.

  10. To my darling youngest granddaughter.
    I wish you a happy day – and life.
    With love and kisses and hugs

  11. Happy Birthday to Pepper. And those sprinkle sticks look fabulous - something to remember for the next party we host (almost like fairy bread - only better).

  12. Happy birthday little Pepper, hope you had a fabulous day & I'm sure mummy did a wonderful job with all your party preparations. I hope mummy got to enjoy the party aswell.
    hugs & hope you keep everyone in your family laughing for a long time ♥

  13. I have a first birthday to prepare for far too soon - sprinkle sticks might make an appearance!! Hope the day was lots of fun :-)

  14. What an awesome treat idea...
    So simple yet so clever... Thanks for sharing yet another super idea with us all Kate..

    Take Care
    Jodie :)

  15. Loving your blog, thanks for the b'day treat ideas, I can imagine white or milk chocolate would go down a treat! I don't go to the Farmer's markets lately, but am coming up to Dayelsford for a lookee and blogmeet, so i'll sya hi and hopefully have lots to spend!

  16. Happy Birthday to Miss Pepper! What a wonderful celebration you've had! It's a magical time :) K

  17. The sprinkle sticks look delicious, but I had to laugh when I thought - will it be just like toffee apples, when the toffee's gone, the apple gets looked at askance? Did the grissini actually get consumed? I reckon savoardi (spelling?) biscuits would work well.

  18. Happy birthday to Pepper - I hope a wonderful time was had by all! Two is an incredibly cute age.

    I have to say I really love your grissini sticks. What a brilliant idea - I wished I had seen your post before we did our party yesterday! Anyway, another goodie to file away for the next party.

  19. Happy Birthday Pepper...and your sprinkle sticks are so perfect.. im sure the kids loved them.

  20. Brilliant idea - love it. My boy is 3 in January - this is on the list! Thanks. nic
