Sugar is Two Sweet!

My sweet furry child turned TWO years old on Tuesday! Sugar’s name and the fact that her birthday is so close to Valentine’s (February 11th) made a theme for the party super simple: SWEETS! And what’s more sweet than being two years old (get it? TWO sweet)?!

Decorations

Fortunately decorating an entertaining a two year old kitty is far simpler than two year olds of the people variety! But I still wanted a day of fun and love~

The tablecloth was from Dollarama and reminds me of the decor at a little sweets shop! I cut out the banner out of felt; all in pink except for the occasional donut and ice cream.

I also bought a ton of cheap valentine’s candy and decorated my place with them! All the guests were able to take home a loot bag full of even more sugary sweet treats!

The Food

This little pink cake was made using the Wilton Ombre cake recipe! It’s just a very simple white cake recipe~ but oh so delicious! The insides were coloured in layered pink ombre cake.

The cake is covered in pink buttercream, piped on with a star tip. And the ears, eyes, and pink heart nose were made out of white melting chocolate which I carefully poured with a spoon! The whiskers were made in a similar way but with dark chocolate darkened further with violet food gel!

There was a fair bit of buttercream and cake left over from cutting off the crowns, so I used the remainder to make chocolate dipped cake pops! They always go over super well especially if somebody doesn’t want to say they had a whole slice of cake!

The cake is small (5″) but is incredibly sweet and it’s enough to fill up 6-8 people with a generous serving of pure goodness.

Sugar had a blast, and promptly fell asleep on the table shortly after trying to steal all the buttercream she could! 😀

Happy Birthday Sugar!! xoxo

Happy birthday to MEOW!

Today is Sugar the Cat’s FIRST birthday! When I adopted her last April, the shelter told me that she was the only girl born on February 11th, 2018. 😀 I celebrated her birthday this past Saturday by having a great big bash with all her friends.

Here is Sugar the day she came home – almost a year ago! Almost grown into those ears!
Party animal – doesn’t she look thrilled 😉
Party time! Even Hello Kitty made an appearance!

I decorated (guess how long that sweets garland lasted for? SIGH!), baked cupcakes, blew up balloons, and had a loong conversation with a cashier at the party store about my daughters first birthday plans (she IS my daughter – just a bit furrier than usual!)

Presents were found (much more fun wrapped!)

In case you’re curious too, she ended up getting an Ikea cat tube from my brother. Yes, it fit in that tiny little package!

She only had a tiny nibble of frosting – wasn’t really interested in PEOPLE food. Blegh!

Cake was SMASHED!

The cat’s IN the bag!

A great time was had by all! 🙂

It’s always a great time to throw a party! Whether it’s for your human friends or your pet friends.
