Finally - at last!

Yesterday Kendall (my baby girl) became a teacher!

After 5 years (almost!) of blood, sweat and many, many tears she completed her final teaching Prac
and is now ready to embark upon the job of her dreams.

A celebratory cake + chocolates + strawberries was an obvious choice to mark this milestone in her life.  

The champagne came later!

Thank you Miss Louise for being such a wonderful mentor (and supervisory teacher).  .  You entrusted your class to her and gave her such a wonderful opportunity to find her wings and learn to fly. 
 I know Kendall will be eternally grateful.

This cake was my version of the famous "rainbow" cake - however due to the fact that it had to travel on the floor of my car for the journey to school and was in severe danger of completely toppling over  -  I decided to opt for 4 layers instead of 6.
(Wise choice I think.)

Nevertheless - it still had that real WOW! factor when Kendall cut into it.  There were plenty of  "Oh's and Ah's"  around the staffroom when the 4 layers were revealed.  Quite a Master Chef moment!

Congratulations Kendall!  We are all so proud of you.

I know you are going to be a brilliant teacher and I am so looking forward to following you on your journey. 

Lots of love and hugs!!

  3. Congratulations Kendall!! I can still remember how excited I was to finally finish my teaching studies and to have a class and classroom all of my own. It sounds like Kendall's supervising teacher was a great support and role model. LOVE the cake, may have to get some advice for you if I attempt it for a birthday one day :)
