Birthday Pictures!

We had a pretty big party for Mackenzie's birthday. I think we ended up with about 14 kids plus their parents. We had a blast!

I decided to get my hands dirty and play with some fondant. I've never worked with it before but have always wanted to. Before I did this cake I did a practice run. After that I was hooked! Homemade fondant tastes so much better than the store bought stuff. It was so much fun to do. I made my own white fondant but bought the black and pink. I did try to color some of the homemade fondant black but it was too much of a mess. I never did get it fully black either. But I did figure out how to get a pretty cool purple! I love how the cake turned out and I can't wait to make another one! Thank you to my fondant savvy friends for all the tips and support! Here is the cake!

I also made the birthday banner. We had lots of zebra and pink! Some might think I went a little overboard but I don't think so!

Birthday girl! Yes, I found zebra striped leggings! I was not looking for them and just happened to see them at Babies R Us while shopping for other things. Of course I had to get them! Mackenzie's hair pretty was specially made for her by the owner of Bee Bops & Lollipops to go with our theme. I love it so much.

Mackenzie has been asking for a pink bike for a number of months now. She was so excited to see this! She got a matching helmet and knee pads too. She's already been on it a few times and does great.

This chica was spoiled by her friends. Thank you to everyone who came and made her day extra special. You mean more to us than you know. We love you!


  1. Kenzie is so lucky to have a Mum like you who does all that. It is so special that you made the cake and banner :)

  2. I'm impressed with your culinary skills! But, what exactly is fondant?
    Mac has really grown up. She definitely looks a lot like her daddy.

  3. That cake is gorgeous! You did an amazing job with the fondant...I'm jealous of your baking skills!!

  4. what a special day you two made of it for her...she will get such a kick out of looking back at these pictures and memories one day
