What a Sweet Treat!

Earlier in the year Abi said she wanted a birthday party with 'lots of sweets'! Knowing how much she loves to cook, I asked her if a baking party would do. She agreed to it and had a short guest list of just 4 other children. (I'm not super woman, baking with 5 kids that do not know measurements and a couple that are just getting good at reading is about the best I can do!) She anxiously awaited the arrival of her guests, asking just about every 5 minutes if it was time for her party yet!!!

5 stations, 5 recipes

Ingredients galore!!!

Make sure the bitter and cream cheese is softened!

This has been my project for the past week or so. I made each guest an apron with either a matching apron for their doll or a chef's hat.

Can you tell which one is for Luke?

Let the party begin!!

While waiting for their cupcakes to bake, Abi opened gifts. Luke gave her a charm bracelet with a little puppy dog on it! Sofi and Alicia brought her a barbie and a blank book set that allows her to create her own book. I think the best present she received was getting to do her favorite things, eat and cook, with some of her favorite friends!

Wow, what a wonderful party you gave! Love the aprons, and such a fantastic idea to have them make and decorate cupcakes! She'll remember it forever, thanks to her creative mommy! Thanks, Jen, for the very sweet comment you left for me - it totally made my day! Glad you like my blog, and glad I got to take a peek at yours too!
