On Sunday we had the fam over for a little partay for Monkey Pants. Because I am slightly nuts and a bit of an over-achiever I decided to try and make a fondant cake that I had seen a while back. However, since I knew my weekend was going to be really busy I did make a smart move and order the actual cake part from the grocery store. Nice eh? I used this recipe for the icing. It was gooey and weird, but it worked out great! I was pretty happy with the result. Cute huh?
Truth be told even with the cake being pre-made I still barely got it decorated in time. An hour before people were supposed to be arriving Beth came to my rescue and helped get the house ready. Seriously, one hour till party time and I had the cake half decorated and NOTHING else ready. Ah, what would I do without that lady? Only a true friend will clean your toilet and laugh at your ridiculousness. Cute cake, but its half way through projects like this that I curse myself for not just paying a bakery to make the dang thing.
Monkey liked her cake, but in the end she opted for a big cupcake. She walks around asking for cake every day now. She's hooked.
We were so excited to give her the new kitchen that we got her. Remember all those pieces? Well here is the finished product...
She loves it! So do I! I looked around on the internet for a while for the right one. I knew I wanted a wooden kitchen but they can be really expensive. I found this one on ebay and fell in love with it. Wooden, affordable, and red! The red part was a bonus. It is made by Kid Kraft. The assembly was a pain in the butt, but it was worth it!
So there you have it. I have a two year old. That is crazy.
Tomorrow..some maternity shoot sneak peeks.
