The week before Clara's first birthday we had her pictures taken by a professional (Amanda Bills, she is wonderful!) I really wanted to capture her CUTENESS at this stage in her life...on this teetering line between baby and child.
To celebrate her [upcoming] birthday - I wanted to treat my little sweet to dessert...for the first time. I looooove pictures of little ones eating their first cake...my Pinterest is full of them! Clara doesn't eat cookies or candies or cake...(read: she has a cruel mother who doesn't want to give her sweets!) and up to this point had only had a couple tastes of her daddy's ice-cream once - something I have yet to write about...but need to one of these days.
I was thoroughly excited about this! I thought about what TYPE of cake her FIRST cake should be - what flavor icing? Handmade? Bakery? Candles? No candles? Decoration? Cake topper? Hahaha...silly me getting caught up in details that don't really matter. *Sigh* I bought a small white cake with buttercream frosting from our local bakery and decorated it with bazillions of colorful sprinkles.
Needless to say...she enjoyed it immensely. And we had a blast watching her eat it so daintily.
Ummm...and I ate the rest of it when we got home.
