Audrey is 3 - The Cake and Desserts

    I've been wanting to post these photos from Audrey's party for the past week but I have been so busy! It was a crazy week of deadlines and activities for the kids and I was dead tired by night time and couldn't get up early enough (at dawn!) either to sneak some blogging time! 
   Anyway, I think these sweet treats deserve a post all on its own though so we are starting with these :) I'm pretty sure you will love what you will see! 

The Cake
A BIG BIG Thanks to The Cake Shack girls for this truly beautiful, colorful and yummy birthday cake that they made for Audrey! :) It was such a delight to see what they came up with after our brainstorming session together before the party! They put in all the details that we requested and exceeded our expectations! We especially love love love the Audrey topper!!! :) And all dressed up in her actual outfit for the party too! ;)

I am very particular with details and I can honestly say that I am so pleased and happy with how this cake turned out! There are many cake makers out there that can make yummy cakes but are not very meticulous about the details 
and proportions of the designs of and on their cakes. I think you will agree that the toppers on this cake were well 
made and crafted beautifully. They obviously put in a lot of effort into making this and if you are a perfectionist and 
don't want to get disappointed, then the The Cake Shack is your kind of cake maker :) 
They've got talent and diligence combined!

Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, you slice the cake and see this!!! A rainbow of colors sandwiched between rich lemon cream cheese buttercream! :9 This rainbow cake is not just beautiful but delicious as well! It was moist and yummy and it's no surprise that The Rainbow Cake is their best selling cake! It usually comes covered in whipped cream (which I've tried already and it is good!), but for the party we had to use fondant so we could achieve our design intent. Needless to say, this cake was a big hit with my friends! :) I kept getting messages after the party about how yummy their take home slices were!

This is the Dessert Table which we loved as well! Love and Lavender teamed up with The Cake Shack to come up with this colorful and artsy setup! Bea prepared the melted crayon art which we requested from our initial meeting and she made this heart (Audrey's favorite shape!) with colorful strings! Also loved the calligraphy that she provided :) Everything just came together and the details were perfect for our art theme! :)

All of these cupcakes were courtesy of The Cake Shack as well! They prepared Caramel Walnut cupcakes with colorful icing for our paint palette display, yummy Chocolate Yema flavored ones with a cute spilled paint topper on each, and Red Velvet cupcakes with a mini paint palette on top. These were instantly wiped out at the party! In this photo collage is the Mini Blank Canvas Cake for Audrey that she will be designing herself during the party - an idea that the Cake Shack girls suggested to us and we absolutely loved! :) And of course, inside these giveaway bags are Cupcake Decorating Kits made up of a Red Velvet cupcake, rainbow sprinkles, rainbow crystals, and two mini piping bags for the icing! It was a whole lot of fun to make at home :)

Bea of Love and Lavender provided the labels using a scanned copy of Audrey's artwork :) She also prepared these cute mini Chinese takeout boxes (which Audrey really loved!) for the candies and the label for the Cupcake Decorating Kit bag! Check out a closeup photo of the melted crayon artwork that she made for us! I can't wait to try doing this with Audrey soon! :) Bea said it was really fun to make!

These sweet colorful drinks were lovingly prepared by Love and Lavender as well.
The details and colors were perfect for our setup and theme :)

Bea of Love and Lavender took care of displaying and presenting these yummy candies in jars,
funnels and big bottles :) Thanks to my friend Tintin for giving these candies to us!

Colorful jello in shotglasses were placed by Bea on a tier display.
The Watercolor Palette Cookies and Paintbrush Rice Krispies were made by Michelle of Coco Cakes.
These cute and yummy treats were loved by both kids and adults! :) 

Audrey the Artist at work on her Mini Blank Canvas Cake!
She was pretty serious about designing her cake with the edible markers
that The Cake Shack girls provided :) Dad and I also got to doodle on the cake a bit hehe.

Our photos with the Birthday Girl! :)

Thank you again to Genine, Gui and Bea for making Audrey's party sweet and a whole lot of fun! :)
