This year, I was leaning towards making Zoe a carrot cake until Jed discovered my plans and absolutely insisted that Zoe MUST have a "Pink Princess Cake." So we found some strawberries in the fridge and I made her a little 6" strawberry pink lady cake. She sat on the counter with me and licked at every step, just for quality assurance you know.
Rather than decorate the cake in some fancy and fashionable method, I thought it would be fun to let the kids decorate the cake themselves. And boy did they love it. First a rather messy layer of cream cheese frosting, topped with several kinds of sprinkles and every candle we could find. Prettiest cake I've ever seen!
this pattern himself. He chose all the fabric and helped me cut and stuff the baby. He insisted on pink hair. We had so much fun working on it in the afternoon while Zoe was still napping! A secret surprise!
her own babyhood when she loved to be swaddled so much.)
And here was the highlight of the evening - her daddy made her this amazing dolly bed that perfectly matches her own! Every night we put her dollies to bed, it's so much fun. He's pretty much the best dad ever. She'll be playing with it for years.
