My circus loving nine year old had a circus party this year with School of Larks our local circus school. He and his friends enjoyed learning juggling skills, having a go on the trapeze, silk and ariel hoop, diabolo and unicycles! It was brilliant - my friend and I also had a quick go on the trapeze too. For his birthday cake, a friend helped me to photoshop Ted's head onto a vintage circus image so we could create a tightrope cake topper (original idea found here). Then we came home to make pizza's from scratch!
