• Fruit Rainbow with Cheesecake Cloud Dip

    This year my daughter wants a beach themed birthday party.  Every year around May I start to get a bit anxious and slightly terrified of what she’ll request.  In the past we’ve done a lot of princess parties – easy!  Then moved on to animals.  Pandas and most recently, the Pig.  That one was actually pretty fun.  I sat up at night making tiny pigs out of pink fondant to sit on top of her swimming pig cake.  I can’t imagine not having the internet to reference for ideas!  Then came  American Girl.  Wow!  Just who is this Grace and why are her clothes more expensive than mine?
