Sweet Birthday Goodies...



Alexa's third birthday was this past Saturday. The little diva that she is, she wanted a birthday cake with lots of "sparkles". She wanted a Barbie princess cake. I did not get a picture of the whole cake (to wrapped up in playing host to take a picture!), but I did get this shot of all of the sparkles. There was also a tiera on this cake that was topped off with three pink sparkly cupcakes. My father was taking all kinds of pictures, if he has one of the whole cake I will be sure to post it. The marshmellow skewers were something different. I usually make cookie lollipops but I saw these on Kristen's blog at graceviolet.blogspot.com. They just looked too good to pass up and they were so easy to make! The kids loved them and I think they actually had less sugar in them than the cookie lollipops. I don't claim to be a cake decorator by far, but my girls always seem to love their birthday cakes and I have a lot of fun making them. I will keep making them until they tell me to stop! I hope everyone has a great week.
