I can't believe she's 5 !!!

Lizzy had a birthday so that means birthday cake, of course! This one is acutally out of fondant (but of course, I don't like the taste of fondant, so I iced it normally underneath.) Jacob is my "muscle" and kneeded and rolled out all the fondant for me. (It was Wilton Fondant so it was hard to roll out, of course) Everything except for the pearls at the bottom of her skirt and the "sea weed" behind her is edible. Lizzy & I had fun making all the shells and flowers the night before out of gumpaste and then painted them with food coloring. I think the clam with the pearl was her favorite. Anyway, hope you enjoy the cake pics Brittany. Lizzy loved it.

Daddy took the day off of work to be with Lizzy on her birthday. We started the day with the traditional "Blueberry Bannana Pancakes", then gave her a new bike complete with a basket and streamers. After that, she went to Wal-Mart to pick out the Barbie for her cake. We also rented the "Barbie Island Princess" movie (from wich the cake was inspired) and came home and watched that together. She helped me finish decorating the cake then we went to Wal-Mart again because we forgot the graham crackers (to smash and put around the cake as sand) and stopped of at McDonalds for a birthday lunch. She then took a very long, very late nap so she could stay up for the New Year's Eve party that we were going to later that night. We got up, got ready in her new birthday dress from Namma and took the cake with us. She had a blast with all her friends and we got to sing Happy Birthday to her. She told me this morning that she "loved her Birthday." Thanks so much everyone for all the birthday wishes and Birthday cards!
