...and so did Nicholas!
These were actually a new recipe I had wanted to try - a gluten free, Guatemalan sweet cake. The cake was delicious, though it didn't pair well with the icing. But it was still loved by both the kiddos!
I was so happy to be able to create this special
and sweet cake for a little girls 4th birthday.
She was in love with the movie Tangled, so the theme of her party was set. So to celebrate her birthday they did so at Pigtails and Crewcuts (a local children's hair salon) getting dolled up in princess outfits, with hair, nails and a little bit of makeup.
And you can not forget the main characters,
Flynn and Rapunzel herself!
I had the rest of the character set, ordered for the little girl to play with after her party

A long time ago, I use to work at a indoor swimming pool - Charlotte Aquatics. It was an awesome place to work and swim at, well, not really swim at. All they did was teach swimming lessons, 6 days a week. I started off as a "lifeguard" now known as a TA or teaching assistants. Later I became a certified water safety instructor (WSI) and was able to officially teach lessons. I did this every summer starting in high school and then summers during college and even some after college. It was a great place to work at. Who knew that I would be taking MY kids there to learn how to swim! They are almost there, Nicholas is no longer afraid and Olivia just has to get passed her fear of being dropped and she's off and swimming on her own. But in time they will learn.
Anyway, I made some CUTE cookies for our teacher Tara and for the staff there. Had to include a fish or two and since it was Easter weekend, I included a few Easter themed cookies too!

One of the Hookahs she let me borrow for inspiration
you can read more about what a hookah is here
The Hookah is sitting on a "pillow" cake and the pipe is created using PVC pipe!
Here I created what is used on top of a hookah, a piece of foil with charcoal
The first line says Happy Birthday

I LOVE the little piggy, especially with it's cute little curly tail!

Ella, the three year old, wanted a Fancy Nancy cupcake. I tried to think "fancy" and came up with a few ideas for her cupcake.
The rest of the birthday kids had delicious strawberry and/or chocolate cupcakes to eat.
Happy Birthday Emma and Ella!
