While my daughter and family were here this weekend, we celebrated a first birthday. Mariell's birthday was July 1, but since we celebrated on the 4th she also sported a patriotic little dress.
I baked the cakes, my usual version of red devil's food with buttercream frosting. Marcy reused some decorations she salvaged from her friend's wedding cake. I think it made a lovely birthday cake.
We also collaborated on this fun little Lady Bug. Not professional quality, but fun just the same. The "yady bug" was Riley's favorite.
