Party Recap


My baby boy just turned one. It’s always a bitter sweet day on the first birthday. It’s so exciting to see him learn and grow…and it’s sad that I don’t have a baby anymore! Max has been such a blessing to our family, so I had to give him a party that he loved. This kid is wild. He seriously NEVER, EVER stops moving…unless he’s watching Despicable Me. He will sit through the whole movie, and he laughs and smiles through it. It’s adorable…and kind of a life saver at times.

My husband had the idea of making a cake of a Minion from the movie…but I’m kind of a sucker for the red velvet my mom makes…that that icing does not work well with cake decorating. So, I decided to have my cake and eat it too…with Red Velvet Cake for the grown ups…and GIANT Minion cupcakes for the kids. They went CRAZY for the cupcakes. Max woke up from his nap and immediately had to have one.
