Instead of one birthday cake, I made Smiley two different kinds of cupcakes ~ carrot cupcakes and banana cupcakes ~ both with fluffy cream cheese frosting. YUMMY!
I made personalized little toppers for each cupcake by using a large decorative circle punch to cut out her picture. Then another circle punch just a little bit bigger than the first one to cut out a piece of card stock. I glued them together, glued the final product to a small bamboo fork and stuck them into the cupcakes. Very easy and pretty darn cute if you ask me. I think she liked it too!
Ready Princess? DIG IN!
Feeling a little full.
Time to open a few presents.
Smiley never really got into opening her gifts ~ although these pictures say otherwise:
Overall, I think she had a good FIRST Birthday!
Happy Birthday Smiley ~ We love you LOTS and wish you MANY more!
