Our next door neighbor has 3 little children, 2 of which have birthdays close together. She wanted to celebrate their birthdays together with a big celebration with family and friends. Her little girl is turning 5 and starting Kindergarten, and very much into Hannah Montana. So I made her a rock n' roll guitar with her favorite colors, pink, purple and blue. Their little boy is Nicholas' age and was turning two so he got his own little giraffe cake. Both were a hit with the kids and the family!
Monday was Dad's 65th Birthday. I was dying to try out a new recipe for a lemon pound cake with a blackberry and raspberry buttercream. So I got creative and busy in the kitchen making a few yummy desserts a dinner for us all to enjoy together.
Here is the lemon pound cake cupcakes, sorry this is only picture we took I was busy cleaning up and setting up the candles.
I also made dad's new favorite cake, a Margarita cake which is really yummy, moist and best of all made with Tequila and Triple Sec!! Here is a video of our celebration. As you can see we had lemon cupcakes, margarita cake, and of course margaritas. The best part is after we sang, Nicholas is trying is hardest to blow out the candles! Poor kid...if he only knew they were magic candles!! But we had a good time!
Happy Birthday Dad!
