when your 2 (and three quarters) year old best friend requests a pink princess cake for her 3rd princess party birthday, there is indeed only one answer. you bet your ass i'll bake you one baby! well, not quite how i responded, but i was more than eager to offer my baking services. a pink ombre/gluten free/two tiered birthday cake complete with disney princesses is what i'm talking about here. the pics below are a small insight into the building of a very special birthday cake for an even more special birthday girl. her mama is one of my gorgeous gallery girls who i have come to regard as one of my favourites. i don't see them as often as i should, with work and life getting in the way, but when we do hang out, it's like nothing has changed. my heart grows bigger for her as each month passes and to have such a little person show me as much love as she does, is completely humbling to me. our last discussion had us contemplating our favourite movies, in which she replied 'ummmm, sleeping beauty, but that's on the hard drive...we don't watch dvds anymore'. she already appears to be beyond her tiny 3 years and far more technology savy than i'll ever be. her cuddles are like snuggling warm marshmallows and her baby blonde curls and serious face pulling had me besotted from day one. i am so blessed to have her in my life and i only get more excited by the idea of what adventures await us. happy 3rd birthday beautiful sofia joan, may all of your wishes come true and here's hoping you'll still think i'm cool when you're 18. xx

taking time out. this much cuteness can take it's toll on a princess.
ps. the best part of today? being told 'thank you for coming to my party' by the birthday girl (and watching her smack the pinata...that was priceless!)
pps. my heart burst.
ppps. how will i ever cope when it's my own child?!
