I can't believe Zoe is turning ten, and Ashley is turning eight. Especially the ten. TEN. My baby is a decade old.
Zoe asked for a French theme. She wanted to use black, white and pink. We found mini sparkling cider bottles for each guest, and made the bunting (above) together. Little did they know it was going to be a surprise party.
I told them I thought I left my credit card at Crackpots, a paint-your-own-pottery studio here in Longmont. I said we should run in and check on our way to the farmers market.
I think the cake was even more beautiful sliced. Since Ashley isn't much of a cake fan (she mostly ate the strawberries :-) I used Zoe's favorite cake recipe - Divine Vegan Fudge Cake from my dessert cookbook.
Then I used my Coconut Buttercream and strawberries between each layer. The frosting recipe is in my second edition and under my cake label here on the blog.
On the way home from the surprise party Zoe said, "My smile was so big that I thought it was going to pop!" Ha! I love that!
I am so proud of my little girls. They are smart, funny, and above all full of love. You can peak more into their lives by visiting our family blog.
I love you Zoe and Ashley! Happy birthday! ♥, Mommy
