I usually don't have the opportunity to mosey over to other extended bloggers and check out their posts. I have to say there are a lot of creative minds out there and I love getting new fresh ideas from them. I came across one of Laura's favorites "Melissa" and I just love reading other Ballerina moms' blogs. Melissa posted pictures of her little Prima Ballerinas from their ballet recital. So cute! Their theme was Disney, which is a great idea for the little girls. A couple of her posts struck my interest because they were titled "Ballerina . . ." She posted really creative ballerina cookies for parties. So cute and it sounds easy! I would love to make these for a birthday party. Now, I have to convince Katie that we need to have a Ballerina Birthday Party. Do you think I will succeed? Even though her birthday is not until July, I like to get an idea right about now. I guess I need to plan ahead, especially since we've got little boy. Moms can be stretched a little thin from time to time. Right now, Katie is having a hard time deciding what theme she wants to go with. What she does know for sure is she wants another butterfly cake, like last year. Maybe we could make a ballerina shoe cake to go along with the ballerina shoe cookies like these.
Speaking of Ballerina Birthday cakes, I found one that I absolutely love on a fellow blogger's site. Sugarcraft by Soni have lots of beautiful cakes displayed on her blogspot.
Isn't this cake gorgeous? Soni has more photos of this cake on her blog. Click here to view other pictures.
Man, it's too bad that Soni doesn't live close by here. I would be tempted to go ahead and order it.
We recieved our Birthday Express magazine a few days ago. Katie has been visiting it often changing her mind every time she checks it out. I thought Doug and I were going to have a fit when she announced one day that she wanted a "Yo Gabba Gabba" party. Now, don't get me wrong. This show teaches Katie a lot, what are these alien creatures? Doug can't stand them. Thankfully soon after that announcement, she changed her mind again and wanted "My Little Pony".
I will work on Katie about the Ballerina party and let you know how it goes.
