Birthday Dry Run



Bday cake with candles - dusky rose


No official birthday party for Zoë this year. Instead, we’re going to do a series of mini-gatherings where she gets a cake and gets to blow her candles. For her the thrill is mostly being the star, being the center of all the attention, and getting to be Birthday Girl, have everybody sing Happy Birthday to her, and blowing out the candles.

We did a dry run today. I made a blueberry muffin cake and slapped on a dusky rose frosting. I’m no Bakerella nor am I the kids' godmother who makes these incredibly fabulous cakes. That's okay, because for now, I can still get away with uneven frosting, lazy edges, and crude and simple designs.

Zoë got to practice being the Birthday Girl,
Zoë got to blow her candles, and Zoë got to eat cake!

I love this!
Mom-made cakes are the best by far (regardless of how they technically look). Yours actually looks great to me! I wish I was that good ;)

Wow, I didn't realize that our girls turned 3 just days apart! Happy Birthday to your sweet big girl!!! By the way did I mention our house is exploding with pink? Her father is greatly distressed by the addition of the princess and snow white barbie dolls...maybe because he wants her to stay little!
