While we were getting ready for Julia's birthday, Tali was going on and on about for her birthday she wanted frosting and sprinkles just like the cake she had helped my mom make for Tony's birthday. I briefly pondered just letting my mom handle the cake but since Sundays are so busy with church, skiing and skating, I had to come up with something myself.
We had heart shaped sugar cookies. (Ground oats, coconut, and turbinado sugar mixed with coconut oil and vanilla coconut milk.) The frosting was honey and coconut oil. Topped with blueberry halves and sprinkled with more turbinado sugar. And more blueberries on the side and middle. The candle is stuck into one blueberry at the bottom.
Tali was very happy with the frosting. :) That seemed to be the most important part of her birthday celebration. She's pretty excited to finally be three.
We are a Christian couple joyfully answering God's call on our life to welcome children into our home. We have two boys, Tyler and Tony, and adopted our first daughter, Amanda, in August of 2007 and a second daughter, Christiana, in July of 2009. Talitha joined our family in February 2010 after a surprise pregnancy. Julia was an even bigger surprise in January 2012.
