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.
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.
