I'm going to start today's blog post with a disclaimer: I don't yet have kids. This will be a key piece of information if you are to read this blog and not think I'm a total crazy loon.
Because I don't yet have kids, I don't get to partake in any of the fun kids birthday parties and preparations. With the invention (addicting invention, I might add) of Pinterest, I have found many an inspiration but seldom an opportunity.
So today, I decided to celebrate the momentous occasion of my cute "little kitten" turning 1. Happy 1st birthday, Dolce!! (as an informative tangent: Dolce means soft and sweet in Italian.)
To celebrate, we took her to Petco yesterday to get weighed, one last time as a kitten. She weighed 11.46 pounds. And I'm not entirely sure that was completely accurate, as they had her tail resting on the counter. We also got her a new collar (she has outgrown her kitten one) and picked up a free can of wet cat food as a special treat.
I also decided to make her a cake. Well....in all honesty, I made a cake for my husband and myself. It would be a pretty dumb idea to let her eat chocolate cake. But I figured, while she gets to chow down on her fancy Salmon and Turkey wet food, Blair and I should be able to enjoy a treat too. :)
And I couldn't go without trying to make it look cute! I made a triple chocolate cake, with coconut pecan frosting.
The frosting was to mimic her hair. hehe And I put an 'M' on the forehead!
Happy 1st birthday, Dolce!!!
