oh. my. god. (a 1-year-old's birthday cake.)

Our friends had a birthday party for their lovely daughter today, celebrating her first year. Awesome guys! My son's almost 2, and all I could say after year one was up was, "THANK YOU LORD BABY JESUS- that was tiring." So, congratulations, dudes. Your daughter is a lovely little muffin that I'd love to NOM NOM NOM.

My friend pulled me aside at the party and asked me if I could get a couple of shots of the cake. Of course! I would have done it anyway if she hadn't asked, so this made it less awkward for me to pull out the camera and start shooting. When she steered me inside and pointed it out, my jaw dropped. I was all like, "OH. MY. GAWDDDD! That is the cutest birthday cake I've ever seen!"

So, without further ado, I present to you the world's most adorable birthday cake, ever:



Unfortunately, my friend's daughter and my nephew share a birthday, so we had to jet from party #1 to party #2 in order to catch all the family action- which means I didn't get to get a shot of my friend's kiddo tearing into her awesome cake. No recipe to share today, just bask in the glory of this adorable little layer cake.

If I sound like I'm gushing, I blame the handful of beers I consumed over the course of the 2 parties, and the delirium I'm suffering after working a full shift at work, then hopping around to 2 different infant's birthday parties. My lord! Now I'm doing the honorable thing and heading to bed. Have a good weekend, everyone!

Oh yeah- I forgot to mention- my friend MADE THIS CAKE! She didn't even buy it! Crazy! Of course, those little adorable lambs and fence posts are not lovingly constructed gumpaste models, they are just plastic cake toppers, but whatever! If she made weird little marzipan guys to top the cake, I'd probably think she was insane anyway.
