Happy Birthday Darcy!
I always knew I was going to do something special for my beautiful niece DJ’s first birthday. I started forming ideas in my head when she was still 5 months old! I knew I wanted to make it a bit girly, so I found a beautiful little romper dress from Pretty Little Closet and I made a banner from hessian and embellishments to compliment the dress. Then, I researched cake makers from the sunshine coast area and found a wonderful lady who worked with me to create a gorgeous white chocolate with pink icing birthday cake.
Let me first start off by saying that Darcy was SO surprised by having her own cake, and that she didn’t have to share with anyone! The look on her face was absolutely priceless. DJ was almost afraid to touch it, but when she was assured it was ok, she ever so delicately poked one tiny finger in. Being the good aunt that I am I quickly stepped in showed DJ that just digging in with your whole hand was super ok! And the result of that is the 3rd picture posted below.
Im pretty sure by the end of it all Darcy almost went into a sugar coma, but it was all worth it just to see the look on her face!
