Wine & Cheese, Birthday Edition

10 Apr 2011

We missed Maria and Patrick’s back-to-back birthdays while we were on our vacation.
Happily Maria was game for another Wine & Cheese Friday so we could catch up!

This time, Oscar got to announce a surprise cake!

Maria and I have become cake snobs. There, I said it. We’re not super proud of that, and it’s a bit inconvenient, but it’s true. That’s what addiction to Sweet Kiera will do to you. Wait. Yeah – that’s it – I’m a victim! It’s not my fault I have ‘The Next Big Thing’ living next door, and producing copious amounts of sweet perfection…

Look how nice Mikayla and Lucy play together!

And here’s a small portion of the goods Maria had for us!

AND, the cake. It’s chiffon with chocolate filling, whip cream, and beautiful soft fondant that Kiera dusted with pearlescent paintbrush strokes. The cherry blossoms were inspired by Patrick & Maria’s wedding.

The Schmidt family came over too – it was great to see them! I tend to have a glass in my hand, not the camera, so I only have these few photos. But we had a really fun time, and the kids are awesome together. Patrick made fantastic ribs (MMMMMMM!) and I don’t think I’ll be hungry again for a week.
