Happy 1st Birthday, Tabitha!

Posted on

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:
