It’s not often that Ladybug’s birthday falls on Mother’s Day (I think it happened once before), but this year, we got to have a double celebration! After church, she got right to opening presents…I think she was pretty happy with the things she received!
This afternoon, we watched a few of her favorite movies, while I worked on dinner. For the second year in a row, she requested cabbage rolls and mashed potatoes…I think my cabbage rolling technique was much better this year, because they really didn’t fall apart in the cooking process!
She asked me to make a mirror glaze for her cake, which is not something I’d done before. Fortunately, I did a test run last month, so I knew what needed improvement, and in the end, I think I may have reached the pinnacle of my cake decorating abilities with this dessert! Yes, there is edible glitter on it!
And here’s a little glimpse at Mother’s Day (although the Oreo truffle bouquet is technically from last weekend, but it was made for a Mother’s Day celebration, so I think it still counts):
Happy Birthday Ladybug!
