Lillie’s Strawberry Shortcake 4th Birthday Party

Posted on July 29th, 2010 in Cakes, Cookies, Cupcakes

Hi Everybody! I’m so behind in positing and I have a few things to show you. I’ll work hard and get those new desserts posted asap.

In the meantime, I want to show and share with you a special celebration cake. My Lillie turned 4 years on the 4th of July! She is growing so fast and that makes me so sad, but I’m so happy to see  her grow up, learn new things and share with her new discoveries. I’m going to cry….

Any way, here are pictures of the cake, cupcakes and some of our wonderful friends that attended the party.

Here’s the Cake/Cupcake display!

This year, Lillie wanted to have Strawberry Shortcake on her cake. I decided to go with a small cake surrounded by vines and a couple of bid colorful flowers. The topper is a toy because I wanted her to keep it. The fondant covered cake is Chocolate (as requested by the Princess) and filled with vanilla buttercream.

 For the rest of the kids, I prepared cupcakes. I love the idea of not having to cut and slice. Each kid had his/her cupcake when we cut Lillie’s cake (No mess, Yeah!). Do you see the cookies? I forgot to take a closeup of them and this is all I manage to get a picture of.

 This time, I tinted the cookie dough in pink and green colors to match the theme. They looked amazing! I also decorated them with royal icing strawberries, number “4”, Strawberry Shortcake hats and “Happy Birthday” messages.

Pink and white cupcakes topped with edible pearl decorations.

And here are a few pictures of the party.
