Turtle’s birthday party was a little out of control last year – there were just too many people. So this year we decided to take it down a notch and just have family. Two of Turtle’s favorite things are kitties and the color pink, so that was an easy theme decision.
I made a small cake just for Turtle, using Bakerella’s yellow cake recipe, and covered it with her chocolate cream cheese frosting. Of course, the cake needed to be pink so a little food coloring gel did the trick.
No two-year-old’s birthday party would be complete without cupcakes, and ours were chocolate with pink cream cheese frosting. I learned that cute cupcake wrappers are overrated, and I should have just used the cheap ones from the grocery store.
Turtle had a wonderful time and got lots of awesome presents. I made way too many cupcakes so I suppose I will be forced to eat them so they don’t go to waste. Darn.
