Today's my birthday!!! And what is a birthday without a cake! We will not discuss how many candles are needed for my cake. This cake started it all in terms of my obsession with children's parties. The theme of a party is very important to me and I chose "The Hungry Little Caterpillar" for my daughter Emily's first birthday in June 2009. I would love to say that I chose this book because it was Emily's favorite or something educational like that but truth be told, I just thought I could make cute decorations for the party! Even though the pipe cleaner little antennas didn't make it to the cake in time for the picture, I think it turned out pretty well. I was very food conscious at the time and the "head" of the caterpillar is Emily's smash cake. This was made with a sugar free applesauce cake recipe and wasn't that bad. I will post more pictures of the decorations soon. Can't believe my little girl is 3 now!!
Well, I am a Southern working gal with a wonderful husband and 2 fabulous little girls. My outlet for stress has always been crafts. I love scrapbooking, making something unique, and searching the web for neat party ideas. Everyone has an inner crafting diva inside just busting to be let out and my hope is this blog will inspire you to let her!
