Farm Birthday Party

Farm Party

And on that farm, he had a cow... E-I-E-I-O! We are celebrating Lucy's 2nd birthday on the farm with all of our animal friends. Instead of a traditional dessert table full of small desserts, we decided to include the whole farm in one big cake.

The base of the cake is a full sheet cake. We made a barn and silo out of rice krispie … [Read more...]

To accomplish that, I set up a bar, mixed some fun cocktails, and set out my favorite … [Read more...]
