My daughter had a birthday this week which means I spent most of my week in the kitchen. I wasn’t going to go all out this year but as her birthday got closer I just couldn’t resist. I don’t bake sweets very often, probably because I eat way too much of it. But it was nice to spend some time in the kitchen rather than the garage.
I have always loved the look of textured cakes so I bought some cake combs and a turn table from Joann’s this year to experiment with, it isn’t as smooth as I would have liked it but I love the texture! It will take a bit more practice that is for sure!!
My daughter and I made these cookies together the day before her birthday. She is such a good little helper and I love that we get to spend some one on one time together! Plus, the cookies were delicious and the first things gone!
For the cupcake wrappers I used a generic cupcake pattern I found on Pinterest and cut them out of scrapbook paper. To get the fun edge I used scalloped scissors.
The party turned out great. It was a nice evening spent with friends and family!
You may have heard…….I have the privilege of being part of Bob Vila’s Thumbs Up Competition for my dresser turned bench. I would love to have your vote!
