Ginger wanted a cake with lots of rainbow sprinkles, so this is what she got. I wasn't paying attention when I assembled it so it ended up pretty lopsided, and the cake was too moist to pick up and roll the sides in sprinkles, but I think Ginger was pretty happy with how it turned out. Sufficient sprinkles, it seems. Plus, she told me she could eat a whole bowl of the new frosting I tried out. So, I'll call it a success!
Just a few simple gifts, but that's always best. I love her smile as she opens her gifts. Her personality really shows.
Her favorite gift was in this box: an enlarged print from a very good photographer-traveler friend of mine that Ginger follows on Instagram. She's had her eye on this print of his for a while, so even though she knew what she was getting she was super excited about it.
The whole turning-a-year-older thing isn't official until the candles are blown out. I was so happy the cake hadn't slid. Ginger was so happy to see the sprinkles.
