Baby turns 5

Little Rosebud is getting less little every day.  Don't they all?  She turned 5 last week.

We had a fun date on her birthday.  With a few days left on our Thanksgiving Point  membership we decided to make the trek to Utah County and visit with the birthday girl, just her and I.  We packed a lunch and even  stopped by my mom's work to say hi while we were nearby.  I don't have pics cause I didn't want to keep track of my camera down there.

Rosebud is a big lover of ice cream, so I did an ice cream cake for the first time.  It wasn't too hard.  Photographing the dang thing was nearly impossible though.

I thought I had a cake board left, but didn't realize I was out till it was time to stack the layers.  I settled on my great-grandma's antique platter.  It looked girly and needs to get used more anyway!

After a failed attempt at using these Wilton Sugar Sheets to make a ballerina silhouette to lay on the cake, we chose a little Barbie figurine from Target that could be played with later.

Rosebud picked pretty pink pearls to line the edges with.  They are truly beautiful, just don't break a tooth on them!

 The frosting is a mix of cool whip and vanilla pudding mixed with only half the amount of milk called for.  It held up well with the ice cream cake and froze nicely.

 Little punk took off her cute birthday outfit and changed into her last year's dance recital costume right before guests arrived.  

She got a set of Barbies, a set of Frozen figurines, two Barbie movies , a pop up play tent, and an outfit.  So fun!

 The cake is a 9x13 split into two layers, and a layer of vanilla ice cream in the middle.  I lined the cake pan with saran wrap, then froze ice cream in it overnight.  Then frosted in the morning before our adventures.  It was perfect in the evening when we had the party.

We love her with all our hearts!
