Our sweet Scarlett turned 5 today!
We celebrated this occasion with family tonight.
Served her favorite meal: ribs, rice and SALAD (she loves salad)
I loved to see her so happy...a party especially for her, for the spotlight is often taken by her crazy big brother and little baby sister. A day JUST for Scarlett!
She was so excited when I showed her all the different ice cream flavors I picked up at the store: bubble gum, tiger, cotton candy & mint chocolate chip.
Chatting on the phone with Grandparents wishing her a Happy Birthday!
Birthstone earrings from Grandma Rose & Grandpa Phil.
We ended the night with a dance party since he loves music and she got a chance to use her new Ipod dock for her room.
Making the Rainbow cake...I have always wanted to try to make this cake and thought it was perfect for our Colorful Girl on her birthday.
It is simply two white cake mixes, split and separately colored.
I baked them all in round cake pans.
Made a triple batch of icing...oops, icing sugar everywhere.
But that's OK, our dog helped us clean it up.
After slicing off the tops of each layer, stack them up and ice in between.
Put on a thin layer first and placed in the freezer to help with the little bits of cake coming off in the icing.
The final coat of icing is on and purple sparkles on the top.
Mmmm...tastes as good as it looks!
