So last week we seemed to celebrate all week! We had a nice dinner on Isaac's real b-day (June 8) and then a few get togethers during the week with friends and then the full blown B-day party on Friday night. I wanted to come up with something cool to do for his first cake but at the same time wanted it to be appropriate for his age. I'm anxious to do a John Deere cake for him but I figured he'd appreciate it more when he's a little older so I started googling cake ideas and found this fabulous idea for a Fisher Price Barn Set Cake. Now, you could order the set and do it 'by the book' but I've never been a 'by the book' kinda gal, so I winged it. Besides, there was no way I was going to make animals out of icing and break the bank ordering the pans! So, Thursday was a late night for me working on this cake, but I loved it...it was so fun to create with Isaac in mind! We used the animals from his farm set and the rest is icing and cake! We had a fun evening of opening gifts and eating goodies. Unfortunately, the birthday boy was not his usual happy-go-lucky self. We have a feeling that those 1 year shots kicked in the day of his party and he ended up in bed for most of his party...oh well, at least we got a few pics! He was spoiled with beautiful gifts as you can see above. Isaac's favorite: the ride on CAT toy....my favorite: the John Deere quilt! This quilt was a labour of love from Auntie Kim and you can read about that here. Cake was a first for him and he took a few minutes to warm up to the idea but then he dug in and made a mess! Happy Birthday Baby Boy.......you are so loved!
