Nina and I had a party

On Saturday I threw a combined birthday slash cake party for myself and Miss James. My idea was to bake a whole lot of cake and then have a bunch of friends over to eat a whole lot of cake. So that’s exactly what I did, I baked for a day and half straight and I tried my damndest to fill our dinning room table with as many icing covered goodies as possible.

I managed to make a Strawberry Cheesecake, an Apple and Pear cake, a Red Velvet cake, Oreo cupcakes, Boston Cream cupcakes, a Brooklyn Blackout cake and a dark Lindt Chocolate cake. I actually baked the Red Velvet twice because I wasn’t happy with the first one. So I think it’s safe to say that I baked my behind off, but it was worth it because it was a lovely afternoon spent with lovely people and I’m happy to report that there were no sugar coma casualties on the day, but I’m almost positive that I may have awakened diabetes in some people.

My Nina was so happy, she was crawling all over the place under the table, between people’s legs. She played with her balloons, she gave out kisses and high-5’s and then at 5:30 she had a bath, a bottle and totally crashed like a sleepy little bear that was exposed to way too much fresh mountain air.

In the morning I took a bunch of photos of her opening her gifts. She was so amped in the beginning but I think it was because she’s probably never seen so much paper in her life, but after about 11 minutes she had had enough and went in search of her balloon friends that she made the pervious day.

Nina and I got super spoilt and it was so nice to see so many faces we love in one place. Thanks to everyone who came xxx xx and thanks Anna-Belle for taking some photos of my cake table.

    Dude! Can I just say the I LOVE Nina. I’m kinda obsessed with her, I’ve never met a little with such a soft sweet nature. Such a thoroughly happy little human, I am thoroughly endeared. You guys are clearly killing at this parenting thing. I wish both you beautiful girls all the very best for the year ahead. May your plates overflow-ith with cake from now until forever more. ♥
