Birthday party

We held Sofía’s birthday party yesterday and had  a good crowd. Pink and purple balloons bobbed everywhere, lots of kids splashed in the pool, a giant star piñata dangled from the maple tree, kids sipped homemade sparkling lemonade while adults sipped more… adult things, and of course there was cake.

A three-layer strawberry cake filled with with homemade strawberry jam and frosted with bittersweet ganache. And check out that beautiful “S” that I piped on the top…. after only four tries! Pink and purple flower lollipops were stuck all around, and some kids waited in line to get cake but then only wanted a lollipop. Clearly, those will have to be homemade next time (just kidding!)

I accidentally overbaked it so it came out a bit dry; but the jam helped, the frosting was just like fudge, and that was all Sofía ate anyway.

Happy birthday, little goofus!
