Our darling Tabitha turned one yesterday. One! No longer a wee baby. I’d say I just can’t believe it but the fact is it is almost hard to remember what it was like before she was here. It seems she’s always been a part of our lives. She is such a sweet good natured baby and we just love her so so much. To celebrate we had a small birthday brunch. Brunch is a favorite meal that seems to happen infrequently, plus it goes well with in between her nap times. The menu: sausage jalapeno bread pudding, cinnamon filled scones, cranberry orange muffins, sausage & bacon, and broccoli-cheddar quiche.
The cake : I used a recipe that I’ve used for other birthday cakes. It’s a tad semi-homemade, but super delicious and has a really great texture. It involves a cake mix plus cream cheese. The frosting was a strawberry cream cheese frosting. Because the sides of my cake looked so good I decided to only frost the top. THe decorations were flowers growing up the sides of the cake to the top. Sweet and just right for a little girl. The birthday girl enjoyed it and also wore her birthday crown, which I made a felt and sequins.
And here she is on her real birthday, yesterday:
