Happy Birthday Dear Helen ... You're SIX!
Helen turned six the end of October, and she chose Barbie as her party theme. We had the party at Heritage Park Zoo and it was tons of fun to see the animals and celebrate six years of pink sparkles. She actually tried to stretch her birthday out to cover the whole month of October, so I suppose just one cake is lucky for me.
Speaking of pink sparkles, taking the kids with me to ABC Cake Decorating in Phoenix was quite an experience. We ended up with a heart shaped cake drum, a heart pan, electric pink gel coloring, and iridescent pink edible glitter. All of this went into this birthday cake, with Fashion Fairy Tale Barbie trussed up and perched on the top of the cake as a fluffy topper (did I mention her torso blinks pink and plays rock music?). The layers alternated strawberry and cherry chip, with buttercream frosting. What a delicious way to celebrate six wonderful years of living with Helen!
