We had a very impromptu family gathering for Emily's birthday last night at Justin's parents house. We were just gonna do cake at our house, but Justin's mother invited us over. She even ordered pizza! I have mentioned several times that I am not a cake decorator. Emily did get a delicious cake in her favorite flavor though. I made Cook's Illustrated dark chocolate cupcakes with their vanilla bean buttercream. I made Emily a 6-inch cake and the rest of us had cupcakes.
We had a busy morning getting Emily's pictures taken. I don't think I stopped moving all day. I got some good pictures though. Even though Emily's hair was a little funny. :)
Notice her adorable shoes. They were a birthday present from Justin's mother. They are her first shoes, and she can actually walk in them. They make some good shoes at Robeez.
It took her about 20 minutes to get this far into her cake. In fact, I had to use a fork to break into the chocolate cake to get her eating it. Apparently she didn't want to get messy.
This was what she looked like afterwards though. Ha!
