Kiddo1 had a birthday recently. I've heard of moms who have theme birthdays for their kids with coordinating food, decorations, favors, clothes, what-have-you. I am not one of those people.
I don't have birthday parties for my kids so that they can have fun. I have birthday parties for my kids so that our friends (who just happen to have some really nice kids) can get together and visit.
I've tried to do cute food, but it never turns out as cute as the picture. See the Great Deranged Easter Bunny Fiasco of 2010 HERE
Perhaps the fact that they ended up like this has jaded me a bit in the area of "cute" food.
I leave the birthday cakes to one very talented and creative Grandma who made me a piano cake for my birthday. Kiddo1 requested a Hello Kitty cake.
I wish I could do that. My version would probably look like the Michelin man....
I did attempt one "cute" food for her party, CHICKS! It's just deviled eggs cut the other way with black olive eyes and a carrot nose. If you close one eye and turn your head to the side, they might possibly be chicks. But Kiddo1 helped and thought they were great.
(Note the dark yellow color. That's all natural, no mustard to make that hue. Just good old pastured egg yolks!)
