My baby turned one! We had a small party for her with family. I made her a white cake with lemon filling and pink cream cheese frosting. Yum! The cake wasn't as light as I would have liked, but the lemon was perfect.
The tiara on top fell apart before I could get it on the cake :( so I had to use frosting and graham crackers to salvage it. Behind the cake is a small one just for baby to have at it.
And of course, she had to have a birthday outfit. I made up my own "design" based on pictures all over the internet. I used an old onesie for the top and cut off the bottom. The cupcake on the top was thrown together minutes before the party, as was the one for the doll I made.
The doll is a Simplicity pattern except for the hair, which was based on ideas from several websites and I did my own thing so that if the hair is pulled back in a ponytail or pigtails it looks good. The Simplicity pattern was for a baby doll with very little hair, but I wanted a full head. Ideally, the whole scalp would have been covered, but it was getting too thick and crazy.
I am so glad it all worked out. Now on to hosting Thanksgiving and another birthday two days later. Wish me luck!
