My baby girl turned 5 last week! I can hardly believe it. It seems like just yesterday I was bringing her home from the hospital. We had talked a lot about her birthday since she was turning 5. She decided she didn’t want to have a big party this year so we kept it small. (Little did she know that was fine since we were surprising her with a trip to Disney). She did however want another amazing birthday cake. I think we spoiled her with the awesome Rapunzel cake that my friend Iriene from Artylicious cakes made her last year. If you missed it, you can see that post here – http://www.kristikrusephotography.com/2012/02/15/tangled-up-in-birthday-fun-raleigh-child-photographer/. This year she wanted a Brave cake. I of course contacted Iriene. We didn’t have anything specific in terms of design, so we just gave Iriene complete artistic freedom. I did tell her to not go overboard since it was just us and our neighbors. She of course didn’t disappoint! Olivia LOVED her cake, and so did her sister and her friends. I love to see their expressions when they see it for the first time. They are just as much in awe as I always am when I see Iriene’s work. If you need a cake, you really need to check out her work. Thank you Iriene for another amazing and memorable birthday cake!
