Ballerina Birthday

While we were gone on a family vacation, our little girl turned three!! I can hardly believe that we don't have a baby any longer. When we got home, we had a ballerina birthday bash for a few of Tinkerbell's friends, and as a special treat, a couple of her cousins came to town to celebrate her birthday and Mother's Day. My cousins, Alex and Erica, had a little dance class and the girls enjoyed themselves.

For the treats, I made Black and White Cupcakes--as requested by Tinkerbell herself--and this delicious Strawberry Shortcake Cake from the Pioneer Woman. If you have some fresh strawberries on hand, I highly recommend this recipe!!


  1. Shelley, you are such a great mom! I'm so impressed by the ballerina theme, and all of the little girls wearing leotards and tutus! How fun! You even decorated the cake plate--I hope I can be as organized and festive about birthdays as you are...seriously.

  2. Thanks, Miriam. The birthday party was cute and fun and the girls loved to dance. Decorating the cake plate was A LOT less work than decorating a themed cake!! Remember the Noah's Ark cake that took four tries?!!
