Sweet lil’ Hannah turns THREE today, and she’s mighty excited about it
My little princess finally decided that she wanted a Dora birthday cake for her celebration in school, and since Daddy will not be around on her actual birthday date, we decided to have the school celebration a week earlier, i.e. last week.
“Mommy, I want ALL my friends to sing Happy Birthday to me,…then I will blow the candle!”
Yes, she had been waiting for it for a long time.
Those of you who follow me on Facebook would have seen the initial sneak preview of the Dora figurine that was supposed to sit on top of the cake, but I’ll have to tell you that the finished product shown here was my second figurine…errr…for reasons which I will reveal at a later time.
But anyhow, here’s the cake…with Dora and Boots looking a little too chubby than they were originally meant to be (because of the fondant spreading out). The cake itself is a moist chocolate cake with chocolate ganache frosting in between. Heavenly yums.
As long as the *customer* is happy, I am also happy
In order to be fair, I also made personalized chewy sugar cookies for Hannah’s birthday celebration party packs. In line with the Dora theme, I made the cookies in the shape of stars, and used colorful royal icing on top to make it bright and interesting. Each star was then labelled with a child’s name
Those 2 on the small white plate were decorated by Ethan and Hannah…because I made extra.
…and packed into pretty party packs, helped by my 2 cute assistants…
Pink baggies for the girls and blue ones for the boys…couldn’t get Diego jigsaw puzzles so everyone got a Dora one. LOL
I had to make 2 trips carrying the party packs and my camera to the car first and then followed by the cake.
