As mentioned here we had a busy weekend. Two of our family friends celebrated an important milestone for their little ones, Liam my godson celebrated his 2nd birthday and Terd had a Christian dedication.
Liam’s 1st Birthday Race Car Cake
I just realized now that I’ve been making Liam’s birthday cake every year. For his first birthday I made a cars themed cake and for this year a Mickey Mouse themed cake. Liam love Mickey Mouse and you would find him quietly seated in front of the TV whenever the famous Disney character is on.
This is just a simple cake using basic shapes. I used a circle cookie, flower and little bird cutters. I kept asking Vierte for approval if the cake looked nice and he would make a comments like “Ma put more here and here” and of course I obliged. When I told him I’m done he proudly declared “You did a good job Mama!”
I made poured fondant by mixing water and left over fondant from the cake, melt it inside the microwave for 20 seconds. Initially planned to fill the cupcakes with chocolate ganache but was press for time since I had to bathe Vierte, prepare our clothes, and clean the house.
Over the weekend Coy and I realized that Vierte really is not a baby anymore (but I do insist that he still is). He actively joins party games without any help from us and interacts with other kids. He use to be so shy and would always stay beside us.
The highlight of my weekend was meeting Martha Stewart. She was so nice and even arrived 20 minutes before the schedule. I only have one picture with her a big thanks to Kari of Chef and Steward for taking the photo.
