And Then She Was Four

My youngest turned four this month! It was another odd year of little celebrations, but it turned out lovely. Her requests were simple : a blueberry cake with blue icing and a room full of balloons, please. I can do that! I used this recipe as my guide, and altered it to become gluten-free. I also used whipping cream instead of the cream cheese icing that it recommended. The cake was delicious! 
I had her to myself in the morning, so we treated ourselves to lots of balloon playing, Starbucks, and homemade granola bars. She picked her favourite gluten-free cereal, ate macaroni and cheese (with beans) for lunch, and ended off with a delicious sloppy joe supper. Her gifts were opened whenever she felt like it and she got to talk to so many people through-out the day. She felt pretty special! 
When her sister got home, it was time to decorate the cake. Traditionally, I like having their cake all ready for them to see when they wake up in the morning, but the idea of having them help me with it felt so right this year. They had so much fun! Lots of icing was eaten in the process and our tongues turned blue!
