The Art Cake

Josie already had her big birthday party a few weeks ago. It was an Art Party and an appropriately themed party for Josie's interests lately.  She is one crafty little girl.   Always coloring.  Always creating.  Always thinking.  For her party, I had made rainbow cupcakes and she brought some more of those in for her treat at school today as well.   But for her actual birthday celebration, I thought it would be fun for Josie to decorate her own cake - with food markers!  

Josie requested a chocolate-flecked cake for her birthday cake.  This cake has become an absolute favorite in our family.  It's definitely Josie's favorite cake and it's in my top two!  Anyway, I covered the cake in fondant for her and she was very excited!

For her birthday party, one of the activities the kids could do was decorate cookies with food markers.   Her Daddy decorated this cookie and put it in her lunch for a fun birthday surprise.  

Wilton makes these food markers which I love!

So the decorating begins.  Appropriately, the number 6 takes the lead.

The start of a rainbow but then she realized we didn't have an orange marker, but just kept going anyway.  Two suns.  Polka dots.  Looks fun to me!!

She's very proud of her creation!

 Let's take a closer look, shall we?

Her name and a sun.

Clifford the big red dog, blue sky and a sun.

An elephant.

A volcano.

"6 Y O!" for "Six Years Old!"

I don't know about you, but I call this a masterpiece!!!

Her friend Hope and cousin Connor are taking it in!

And Josie's very proud.  Probably a little more excited to get to eat her cake though.  And she picked out chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream as the "side".  She chose well.

It's going to be hard to top this birthday celebration, but we all had so much fun in the process!

Happy SIXTH Birthday to my amazingly beautiful, talented daughter!  The last six years have been some of the best years of my life!
