Sugar Plum Fairy celebrated her 7th birthday over the weekend. Hubby and I had to be out of town for most of the weekend, but made it home in time to spend most of the day with her.Being gone near one of our kidnick's birthdays has never happened before and I was a bit flustered in the beginning. I made a list and went to work. Last week, I baked her cake and attempted to decorate it. Blondie got a fondant bodice and a goofy looking collar before she went into the fridge for a chill. The rest of her dress was made and stashed under a soup kettle in the fridge until the big day...yes, I take suprising my kids VERY seriously.
I also baked and froze the cupcakes we would take to school. I decorated them yesterday morning and they were a hit with the kids.
Since it was a school night and dinner had run longer than anticipated, we had her take a shower before opening her gifts and a cutting her cake. The wet hair photos will forever be a nice reminder of a hectic, but super fun day with our young lady!
(I loved the cake, but candle placement is challenging as to not melt arms or hair)
