Chars turned one. I had some serious angst about this day but once it arrived I was cool with it.
You have to have 2 cakes. Who wants to eat a mangled cake with 1 year old spit on it?
This was the adult cake. One of my friends made a similar cake (only much prettier) with sprinkles on the side and I had to try.
The smash cake was so much fun to make! And I used a ton of food colouring… opps.
Off course we had a lot of other food! This is an aftermath photo.
We had a leftover gingerbread house so we made a Valentine’s Day house. Alice had been waiting to make one with her Grandma for a while.
She ate more candy then she put on the house, she’s my daughter.
Must seriousness is involved in decorating.
Always fashion conscience Alice had to wear a dress, a skirt and a pettiskirt.
The finished dress! I LOVE THIS DRESS!
Alice of course wanted to help with the cake.
Charlotte thought the candle was pretty.
And was ticked off when it was blown out on her.
She refused to dig in without a spoon.
She got good and messy and Alice was on top of clean up. My job as a parent is done!
It isn’t a party until the party girl cries!
Here is a peak into the cake. POLKA DOTS!!! It was so much fun to make! I used Once Upon a Pedestals’ tutorial that you can find here. I have wanted to make this cake for years. Item officially crossed off my bucket list!
