Happy birthday, Baby Tess!

Pin It Now!
My baby turned one year old last week! We had a small family party at our new home, and I made Tess a new dress, a party hat, and a name banner for the occasion. And of course cake. I hate making cakes. Love to eat them; hate to make them. My sister is an amazing cake decorator, but she lives 2,000 miles away (boooooo!!!). However, I am very grateful to have her as my personal 24-hour cake-help hotline. That's my sisterly right :) Thanks, Janell!

This must be my reward for wearing this stupid hat.

What the??? Get that camera out of my face so I can eat my cake in peace!

Sticking my tongue out helps me balance.

Happy birthday, baby girl! I love you very much, but don't expect me to make you a cake every year... being cute can only get you so far.

How sweet! Your cake came out great by the way. Last year for my daughter's 2nd birthday I made 5 mini cakes. It took so long. But hey I like variety.

Happy Birthday Tess! :) love all the goodies you made for Tess... stinkin' adorable.

Now that you are back in B-town and your sis who makes amazing cakes is soooo far away... you'll have to hit up my sis who makes amazing cakes Charise! :)

What a dainty little girl sitting there with her legs crossed! I can't believe she's already 1.

Looks like she had a great b-day. I can ALMOST taste the yummy cake! It looks amazing - as your cakes always do!
