Yes, sorry I've been on a hiatus from blogging. I have no excuse really. :) I've been thinking a lot of starting a website, and it's all in my head now, just need to execute. That way, it's easier for people to see of a list of things I bake and photos of all the things I've baked. I just need to get over my computer illiterate hump and figure it out!!!
Onto Kyra's first Birthday, last weekend, one of my dear friend's daughter turned one..I can't believe time passes so fast!! She is the cutest thing ever, 1/4 Chinese, 1/4 Vietnamese and 1/2 Indian..what a combination!! :) I feel bad for the daddy when she grows up!! haha. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why I do NOT want a daughter! I'm sure I just jinxed myself. haha.
My friend J wanted a simple dessert table. There was a hot pink theme, and the photo invitation had some orange, butterflies and flowers:
I really like the desserts to match or have some kind of theme/cohesiveness..so I like to work off the invitations..so hot pink desserts with hints of orange and butterflies! :)
Red velvet cake pops with fondant butterflies, "K" for Kyra and "1":
Some snickerdoodle cookies:
some double chocolate chip cookies:
and some requested lemon glazed lemon cookies by J:
Chocolate cupcakes w/chocolate buttercream with fondant toppers:
and a smash cake for the birthday girl in form of a big cupcake!! :)
(the bottom "cupcake wrapper" part is all chocolate :D) Even though Kyra was kind of scared of the big cupcake (smashing not so successful haha), it was a great time with great food and people!
Happy 1st Birthday Kyra! Looking forward to (baking for) many more!! :)
