This weekend, we finally had Lucy's birthday party. It's almost 3 months late (I can't always get it together)! She did a google search for "funky girl birthday cake" images and found this from cakecentral.com:
This is was my interpretation (to the best of my abilities):
She loved it, but did make sure to tell me that I didn't put green stripes around the bottom of the layers. Diva. I'm just relieved that I talked her out of the Hannah Montana cake she had wanted for a while!
I also have to give Jackie from Metrowest Face Painting a TON of credit. She did a wonderful job painting faces at the party! Here are just a few examples of her amazing work:
In all, the party was a hit. Maybe she won't remember that we did her 6th birthday almost 3 months late - yikes!
On top of it all, I got to make another cake for this weekend, too! Very early in the morning (to prevent any interference), I worked on a friend's daughter's cake for her first birthday. Danielle, I hope those cupcake colors were to your specifications! ;)
All in all, it was a cake (& fun) filled weekend! Now, if only I could inspire myself to get the laundry done at odd hours. Then I wouldn't have a pile that rivals the height of Mount Washington.
