Alivia's 1st birthday

My baby girl has turned a year old already! I can't beleive how fast time flys. My parents were able to make it down for the event. We missed you Grandma and Grandpa Welch. Our friends the Lybberts have a little boy, Nathan, who is 5 days older than Alivia so Heidi and I decided to do a combined party. Here are some pics from the day.

Papa is trying to keep the gang happy while they waited for their friends to arrive.

This was my first "start tip" cake. I took three round cakes and pieced them together. I cut two of the circle for the ears smaller with "cookie cuttering" them with a small bowl. Then cut a little out of those so they would butt up against the large circle for the head. For the "black" ears I used chocolate frosting from a tub. For the face I used homemade butter cream tinted flesh color. The eyes are outlined in black Wilton tube frosting. Her tung and cheeks are Wilton's pink glitter gel. The bow I made out of ribbon I had here at the house.

Livy and Nathan opening their gift from their friends!

The cakes! Nathans daddy Blair decorated his Mickey cake and I did Liv's. Great job Blair!

Can we eat it yet?


Livy had lots of fun in her cake as you can see. So much so that she had to get a bath in the sink.
