My baby girl turned one yesterday.  How is that even possible?  It's incredible to think about how far we've come in the past year...

My little 8 pound 2 ounce baby is now a happy and healthy 20 pound girl.  She loves food and she loves to play.  I think she takes after her mommy :)  She is the happiest baby I've ever seen and so much fun to be around.

We celebrated her birthday a couple weeks ago with a big party full of family and friends.  We had a duck theme for her party because she loves her duckies!  You can read about her party here.  You're probably wondering why I would do a blue cupcake for a girl's birthday party, right?  Well, the intention was for the frosting to look like water and then I used white Sugar Pearls to look like bubbles to go along with the rubber duck theme.

However, things don't always go as planned.  The cupcakes themselves turned out amazing!  They were some of the best cupcakes I've ever had.  The frosting however, was a completely different story.  I decided to try a new recipe that looked amazing, but when I made it, it was anything but.  The frosting didn't set and I ended up with a bowl full of runny frosting.  I thought maybe I could salvage it, but after tasting it, I knew that wasn't going to happen.  I opted to go the foolproof route, and ran to the store for a can of frosting :)

Even with the frosting debacle, the cupcakes were a hit.  Everyone loved them, especially Summer, and that's what was important!
