Yesterday was Small Fry’s birthday party. It was a fairly low key affair, but I thought I’d share some pictures.
He started the party asleep on Grandma (my mom). There were a few guests who thought it was weird/inappropriate that the guest of honor was asleep during the party, but at 1 you don’t argue with baby’s desire to nap.
When he woke up (and after eating half a bagel), he was much happier.
I made 2 cakes. This one is Hershey’s Perfectly Chocolate cake. I got one of those super huge candy bars for the top – cookies and cream. It had 16 rectangles, so I used 12 of them around the outside like a clock and grated the other 4 up and put the shavings in the middle.
This one is a homemade carrot cake. I altered the original recipe a touch, though – I cut the oil back by 2/3 and subbed in some applesauce to make up the difference. For the teddy bear shape, I used my Wilton Puzzle cakes set.
Of course there’s the obligatory eating cake picture.
And his messy face afterward!
And some playtime with Mom.
I hope you had a great weekend!
