Cake and cookies and icing, Oh MY!

My princess celebrated her 8th birthday back in March. But, since she decided she really wanted a birthday party at one of the local bounce house party places, we told her that she would have to wait on a party and share the party with her brother. She happily agreed.

Now, we have a dual birthday party coming up in just a little over a week. And I, being the INSANE person that I am, offered to make them separate cakes. Of course, Sarah chose flowers and butterflies while Nathan wants a fire truck.

Naturally.

And on top of doing a cake for each, we decided that some decorated sugar cookies would make nice additions and party favors rather than the silly goody bags that always get sent home with tons of junk in them.

But I don't have any opinions about goody bags.

So, if you're wondering where I am over the next week, I'll be in my kitchen... knee deep in cake, cookies and icing.



Aaaaannnnddd... on top of all of this, we're having a garage sale this weekend.

Needless to say, there will not be a "Foodie Friday" post tomorrow.

And I would imagine that much of the time that I would normally devote to writing next week, will be taken up with cake and cookie decorating.

So, until I dig out of all this sugar, I'll catch you on the flip side.

And trust me, pictures of completed cookies and cakes will be forthcoming.

Oh my gosh....you ARE insane! :) And your kids area really lucky! Now, where exactly IS this party?!? ;) (Just kidding!)

I do the same thing for goodie bags...I think cookies work. Your firetrucks are darling!
