It was my not-so-little-baby-anymore, Ella's THIRD birthday on Monday and we made her a cupcake "cake." Ella wanted carrot cake so carrot cake she got! This is the fleet before frosting.
Wearing her apron while we were baking, Ella thinks, "Hmmm...To lick or not to lick? Where do I attack this cupcake?" I could not help but let us *snack* on a cupcake during the baking process.
Then she figured out just where to attack the frosting. Somehow, for Ella, cupcakes are still mostly about eating the frosting.
We bought a special cupcake holding stand which is oh so cool!! Admittedly, I could have tried a bit harder on the decorations. I got a little discouraged with the colors since all I could find at the store were pastel "baby" colors... I am not a decorating genius.
Later after dinner Ella was happy with her special cupcake.
For her birthday we gave Ella a new bunny. She has her original bunny that she carried around since she could grasp it with her little hands on the right. The new bun is on the left (obviously).
I think the three of them are going to be OK together.
