.: Happy 1st Birthday Rose! :.

Our baby girl is one year old toady!!  It truly seems like she was just born, but at the same time I just can't imagine my life without her!  What a blessing she is to our family! 


Her beautiful rose covered dress was a hand-made birthday gift from Emily!  Isn't it just perfect?!?! Thank you Emily!

And Captain said I had to post this last picture, which is a face Rose loves to make.  It is TOO funny! 


I've never had to bake a birthday cake at this time of year (I don't even have any siblings with birthdays in November or December) so I originally thought with all our other usual plans I would just purchase a cake and stick the Rose Fairy Ornament I had purchased for her on top this year.  Truthfully that would have been so much easier than trying to attempt (for the very first time) making a few pink frosting roses (the white roses were made by Wilton) at 2 am...  How do they make it look so easy on youtube?      It may be full of little imperfections, but it was made with love and my children, especially Rose, were very excited when they saw it this morning. 

The cake is chocolate, gluten-free in fact since this mix is so delicious, with cream cheese frosting.  I made two 8" cakes, and saved some of the batter to make a small 6" cake for the top.   I thought it might work well to take that off after we sing and give to her.   Since she liked chocolate so much, I think she will be in heaven! 'Ill try and post pictures later tonight after dinner and cake... Hurry home Daddy! 


Happy 1st Birthday

  2. Happy Birthday, sweet Rose!!

    Jessica, I think the cake looks fabulous! You did a fantastic job on everything! You did those beautiful pink roses for your first time?! From the pic it looks just like the Wilton ones. Truly, any little girl would be thrilled with a birtday cake like that. How did you do the pearls on the side?

    May God bless your little Rose today and always.

  3. Happy Happy 1st Birthday Rose!!! I can not believe she is already one! I remember looking at pictures when she was just born. Have a great birthday celebration. May she be always in the arms of Jesus and Mary.

  4. Thanks Kelly! Yes, that was my first time... though the first few tries ended up right back in the bowl of frosting to do over! lol! I think I spent over an hour making the few roses I did make. I then gave up and pulled out the wilton roses (aka: my backup plan!)

    The pearls are just the little sugar pearl sprinkles which I stuck into the frosting... at this point they only make it 1/2 way around the cake, since Rose woke up at 2:30am and I had to stop. Apparently it is not a good idea to start baking a cake at 11:30 pm. ;)

  11. It hardly seems possible that she is already 1 year old. What a darling she is, and what a great looking cake. I bet it tastes as good as it looks. We'll look forward to seeing the "after" pictures. Happy Birthday, little Rose.
