Girlie Birthdays!

I'm finally getting around to posting my special project(s) for my daughters' birthdays a few weeks ago.
10 year old girls have very serious ideas and want things the way they want them.
My daughters spent weeks deciding how they wanted their cakes to be- what flavor, what color, how it was to be decorated, the exact placement of each candy sprinkle (you get the picture?)
Well....I took their ideas under advisement, and put in a few ideas of my own.

Since my girlies were 5, they have had two birthday parties each year.  One party was for friends, the other party was for family.  5yr thru 9yr= 5 years x 2 girls x 2 parties/year = 20 cakes!! (plus 2 more this year!) (plus 2 each year for ages 1-4!)

This year, after much persuasion, I convinced them that a "friend party" would be sufficient.

With all the extra time I had, I was able to make a "paper cake" and fill the slices with candy for each girl to take home.

If you haven't checked out My Pink Stamper's blog hop this month (and who hasn't!), make sure that you do.  It's all about birthdays!!

And- if you haven't been to Getting Cricky with K Andrew (again- who hasn't) and seen this post- you must!
