one!

Peanut Butter Cup's first birthday was thursday and the family celebration is later today ... i made this little butterfly cake so she can smash it to pieces ... it isn't quite finished - i am going to slice up the strawberries to add some color to those wings - but i didn't want them turning to mushy strawberry soup before this afternoon, so that will have to wait ...



i made this alternate cake as a backup (because you never know what is going to happen in transit)...




Auntia has a totally different idea of what a smash cake is ... i don't think she was aiming at me ... although, from the few little tastes that i had, that cake is gonna be pretty yummy and i wouldn't mind too much if some of it made it's way into my mouth...



and these are the presents for the birthday girl - a Care Bear tied fleece blanket (next time i have to tie two inch strips, i gonna cut them at three inches and then trim them down - my fingers are too cranky to tie such short strips), a cup cozy, a little cupcake tote (i added a loop and button to the top so that precious contents won't be spilling out) and a Good Luck Care Bear ... it's a good thing we had a bear put away for emergencies - there were no Care Bears to be found at our usual haunts yesterday ...... and now ... on to other stuff!

edit - as a side note, today is Mr. Husker's 59th birthday, and chris's (my friend in topekamerica), too! so, happy birthday to both of you!

Happy Birthday to everyone! And, excuse me, but are you garnishing with *fresh* strawberries?! I've heard they're better mashed! LOL

Very cute cake; hope you all had a wonderful celebration:D
