My sweet baby turned seven a few weeks ago and I wanted to do something special for her on her special day. The girl loves dogs so it was a natural assumption that the cake had to be dog related.
I had two hours and two 10” round cakes…here’s what I came up with!
Here’s what I used:
2- 10” chocolate cakes. I use one chocolate cake recipe in each 10” pan.
2 cans of Duncan Hines Chocolate Fudge frosting
Peanut Butter M&M’s for the eyes/paws/tongue
Wilton tips #3 and #7
It was a fun surprise for her when she came home from school that day and a super fun project to work on!!
We had this cake for her “family” birthday. Does everyone else have to have two birthday parties for their kids?? One with family and one with friends. I don’t know how this trend started but it seems like it has turned into a birthday week instead of a day. Probably my own fault.
For her “friend” party this year we hired Piece of Cake Parties by Paige to come and do the party. Paige is a former co-worker of mine who has started this awesome birthday party business. Let’s just say that I left my house to go to the party with nothing. I had to do absolutely no planning and the price was way less expensive than having a party at home. Crazy right??
The party was a “#1 Chef” Party. We went to a local café where the kids made their own pizza and cupcakes and Paige kept them busy with crafts the whole time. It was awesome.
Here’s my daughter Abby sporting the apron that she created.
Here’s the birthday girl working on making an I-Spy bottle. The kids filled their bottles with colored rice and little trinkets. Paige then super glued the lids on the bottles and attached a list of items to find in the bottle.
Making and enjoying cupcakes.
Fun pizza toppings! Yep, they could even put mac and chees on their pizzas!!
There is nothing better than an egg race while you are waiting for the pizzas to cook.
It was a perfect, stress free day! All of my kids want Paige to do their next party…thank you Paige!!
To top things off, this is the view out the window from the café…had to throw this in!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
