Birthday party pictures!



This is Kate's birthday cake. I make a special cake for my kids for their birthday - not a traditional cake. I'm just waiting to hear those words, "But Mom, I want a cake like everyone else has!" But, she does love this cake. It's very easy to make, consisting of angel food cake, vanilla yogurt, homemade whipped cream and fresh berries (I use strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries). What is this pan called... anyway, the sides slide off and you have a pretty presentation. Like a cheesecake. This year I had the idea to use some strawberries as holders for the candles, and it was precious!



We (and she) kept saying that she wasn't 4 until she blew out her candles!



We have a 4 year old!



It was rainy all night, but we got outside for a few minutes. The kids ended up popping the balloons and that was a hit. Scott's parents came up, and all her friends from Sunday School came - we had a great time!

Precious Kristi!

And I think that would be a springform pan. I have those too but mine don't come out looking that good. Ha! What a great idea and very healthy. I am not that great at the baking cakes and decorating them just at the party planning..LOL! I am sure they had a great time.....

yep, it's called a springform pan and I, too, would love to know the recipe. Did you mix cubes of angel food with the yogurt/pudding?? Do tell :)

I think it's unanymous that you need to post the recipe! That looks so refreshing and light, and what a pretty birthday girl!

Thank you for the horses you gave Emma. The girls will love playing with them. And I hope they will get a chance to play with Kate soon.
