Ravi turned 5 today! I wanted to make this a major celebration for him, because it is definitely very special for me and Mario. This is also his last birthday to celebrate with his current classmates before each head to a different Kindergarten in the fall. I had a long wishlist and knew that I was going to spend a long time in preparation, so I took two days off from work for this event. On my list of things to make are: cupcakes with frosting, layered jello cups, cake pops, and transformer cookies. Believe me, it did take two long days of hardwork to make two to three dozen of each!
Here are the sweets:
I also had balloon animals on my list but I ran out of time to make them prior to the party. I knew it wouldn’t work making them real time since I wanted to help serve the kids and take tons of picture, so that idea got scratched. I hope I can add that in for Maxie’s party.
There were lots of tasting prior to the party. So my inital three dozens of each turned into …two dozen of each… if we were lucky.
Ravi’s birthday party at school was a huge hit. The teachers and students couldn’t believe we brought all the food and toys! It was fabulous. I loved to watch the kids eat and chat with each other with so much delight. My time was definitely worth it! It is the best birthday party we’ve given to Ravi.
All our hard work paid off! Ravi had a very happy birthday, and we were all there celebrating with him. I will always remember this day.
