My oldest daughter turned 6 this month, which is part of the reason it’s been a little quieter than usual around here. One of my New Year resolutions was to slow down and spent more time with family. Anyone who knows my oldest daughter Olivia knows that she can be shy, and hates being the center of attention. She decided she did not want a big birthday party this year, but did still want a great birthday cake.
It has become a tradition in our house that she gets a birthday cake from Artylicious cakes in Raleigh. It started a few years ago with her amazing Rapunzel cake. Last year we had a Brave birthday cake, and this year – well everything is about the movie Frozen so we had a Frozen birthday cake. Since it was just family and close friends I told Iriene at Artylicious we just needed a simple, small cake and left the design up to her. Once again she did not disappoint. I can’t tell you how much fun it is and how excited both my daughters are to get to see the cake for the first time. Of course everyone loved it. Iriene’s work is amazing and so detail oriented. I absolutely HATE cutting into her cakes, for a few minutes. Then I forget about it when I get to taste how delicious they are. This year we chose one of the newer flavors – cookies and cream. It was awesome, and full of chopped up cookies. It was so good I completely forgot to take a picture of the inside of the cake before everyone gobbled it up. You’ll just have to take my word for it, or go get one and try it yourself.
Here’s a couple quick pictures of the amazing cake. The theme was quite fitting as we got 6 inches of snow on her birthday and were all “Frozen” after playing in it all day =)
