Amelia is 2! Part of me finds it really hard to believe that it’s been two whole years since she was born, and the other part of me feels like she’s been with us so much longer than that. Our lives would be truly incomplete without her sweet face, tenacious attitude, smart wit, and loving nature.

For Christmas I made her a Cinderella dress, so it seemed fitting to throw her a Cinderella party.  She loved every single moment of her birthday and nothing could make me happier.

I love to make my kid’s birthday cakes from scratch. It isn’t something that I do very often (twice a year, to be exact) and I really enjoy making their birthdays special. This year I decided on yellow sponge cake with lemon curd filling and lemon buttercream frosting. I love when I get to choose the flavors. Next year she’ll probably have very strong opinions on the subject.


I started making the cake topper 5 days before her party. I made it entirely from fondant (and a foam ball) so it took awhile to set. It was worth all the work!
